I think editting XML is probably your best bet.
A good XML editor and a few unix command line utils like sed,awk and grep (all avaliable for windows) should allow you to manually combine all the policies and filter out the duplicates.
200-300 isn't that many in the grand scheme of things and it can probably be done in a couple of hours.
Bummer... Was hoping someone had written a utility for this (or perhaps knew of a McAfee internal utility).
Thinking I'll be able to do something in Excel to import the XML as a table, filter out the policies I care about, the remove duplicate exclusions. Will probably have to use a text editor for creating the new XML file based on the deduplicated exclusions to make sure the format is correct though.
I'm using Notepad++ for editing the XML (handles language highlighting, tag group folding etc...); but do you have another XML editor you could recommend?
