SharePoint InfoPath List Form: Move from development to test and production environments

Using InfoPath is a quick way to customize your Sharepoint list forms. But as with most quick solutions is comes with a cost:
Often people will create the InfoPath form on their development or test environment, documenting the process, and then later they will repeat the customization steps on the production environment. And if you use the same form on several lists you have to do the above even more times.
This process takes time, and is error prone. Fortunately there is an easy way to move the forms between lists and environments, and still associate the individual form with the correct list.
