Importing footprints from KiCad

Can I import footprints I have drawn in KiCad, I don't want to be stuck without the use of the stock of components I have.

Libraries tend to be difficult as they are generally unique/proprietary for the CAD package. I think Kicad can use components from SamacSys as does DSPCB, BUT there is a translation step from the Samacsys library part to the destination CAD system which is where issues arise. DSPCB can use Eagle libraries, so using Eagle as an intermediate step, if Eagle accepts Kicad then these Eagle libraries should be usable within DSPCB. Just a thought.
