Just taking the occasion of this topic being discussed, I'd like to
mention one thing that might get overlooked but may as well become a
real issue in some cases.
There's a short note on the site
saying, that upgrading existing users from 2.x to 3.x will generate a
new random password for each user.
Is that really the only option? With a few dozens of systems deployed, a
few dozens to a few hundreds users each (real FB users), notifying a
couple of thousand employees of our customers about new passwords might
be a real no-go.
That's one of the main reasons we're delaying the upgrade from 2.5 to 3
at our customers' sites.

Any suggestions much appreciated.
