It does not look too bad.
I've sent an initial attempt privately
Notes from that

Basically there will probably be the odd name conflict, but a quick scan shows
not problems. Just need the get the datadict working to actually build the
tables - or manually build them with a script and skip that bit of the
installer ( that is the usual bodge to get things going - and since flyspray
is using the xml option for the datadict, this may be the fastest option -
just let us have a blank database if you manage to build one :) )
