An external method for automated change from old syntax to new syntax

 * Use at your own risk
 * No warranty implied or given
 * Use on a copy of your main Zope site
 * Back up data.fs three times before starting
 * Not guarenteed not to spin your processor and never terminate
 * Run on a copy of Zope in debug mode (-D) to see the print statements
 * Barely tested, if at all
