Other tasks that can help move this forward, but that don't require work on
the actual conversion code:

- identify branches which have lore patches in them
- identify tickets which propose to fix/modify Lore functionality
- identify wiki pages that need to be changed, and the necessary changes

If anyone is interested in helping out, just say so here, or drop me a line

I'm also happy to send a copy of the code I have so far to anyone who's
interested...just send me an email off list, and I'll send you a tarball.

I'm happy to listen to those too.
