It is not displayed in the file picker.

Wait, I didn't think to check it, but turns out Bamboo reader appends "xml" suffix to the file to which it exports the feeds! I should have thought about it, just didn't expect that the file suffix would matter, especially since OPML is a subset of XML anyway.

I changed the suffix to opml, the file became visible in the file picker, and the feeds are being imported as I write this message :) Thanks, you made me think! :)
