I'm fairly sure that most of the changes would be database structure changes
to ensure compatibility with 2.1. The program itself shouldn't have to be
changed, to my knowledge. Of course, along with upgrading fields, etc. comes
additional time for testing to make sure nothing was broken along the way.

It's something I'm going to take a quick look at this weekend to see if it's
feasible within a couple days work. If so, I might give it a shot to see
what happens.
