Upload Data Into SharePoint InfoPath Forms Library

I have a SharePoint forms library that I created to collect information from people within my company.  I utalized info path so I could make fields dynamic and take advantage of many other data validation options it has.  However the one limitation that I see so for is that there is no easy way to import data into the forms.  

If i were in a normal SP list i know i could import information into the list quickly using the datasheet view but the forms library doesn't seem to allow this.

Is there anyway for me to get bulk data into a InfoPath SP Forms Library without creating a new infopath form for each instance?

You can create an xml file of the data and then build your forms to possibly import it but this still is a one at a time affair.

The best thing I have seen for automation is www.qdabra.com has a tool to build forms from a spreadsheet and it will make one per row of data very quickly.

So the scenario is run a web report out of a legacy system either once or daily and then save as Excel or csv and process with their tool and it will create and submit the forms to SharePoint automatically.
