Oops! I replied to Michael alone, and with some bad info I think. What
I was missing was what migration meant. I guess what I thought I was
answering is not what was going to happen. So, just to be clear. If
you say no, then nothing happens, right? In hindsight, I should have
just said no and done it by hand. Stephen's point about custom may be a
good one as well. However, if we all just say no, then there is no help
there, right? Migration has not happened often enough for me to get a
good idea of what I should be doing and maybe others are similarly
confused. So, anything that can be done to clear this up would most
likely be helpful.
