    Add an Export context menu for layer files in ArcCatalog.

    Our organization currently uses layer files sourced to SDE feature classes as a quicker and less involved way for casual GIS users to load data into ArcMap.  Sometimes those users would like to extract data directly from those layer files in ArcCatalog.  Although it is possible to run the Feature Class to Feature Class tool (either dragging the layer file or selecting it), it would be much simpler to have an Export context menu similar to when a user right clicks on a feature class.
