How to import msn contact groups to Skype

I just merged my msn and skype accounts to chat with some of my old msn contacts. I got that account for so long that I don't even remember who they are or where I  met them. I would like to import my contact groups from msn messenger to really identify who they are, all my msn contacts appear on just one long list and they are of no real use to me.

I would be glad if someone could help me with this.

Yes, this is a big issue. Could the support team of Skype address this in the next release?

I have the exact same problem. April 8th will be a dreadfull day if they don't include those features in Skype before then.. Also I fail see why my nicknames in MSN can't be imported into Skype aswell, seeing as Skype already has that exact same feature.
