How can I share compositing node setup in new file?

I ran a bunch of tests in one file and have a [large] node setup/array that I really like and want to use it in the file that I am doing all of my animation in. How can I take that node array into a new file so I can use that super-mega-awesome effect that I was using in my test file?

Something I have tried is appending the old scene to the new one, but that only copies over the whole scene and I end up having my testing scene in my new file. That’s all fine and dandy, but how do I get that node array copied to the scenes where I actually want to use it?

:confused:

For blender 2.49 but should work just the same in 2.57

Many thanks. That is exactly what I needed.
