Perhaps what I should do is just get the data out, and create new instances
all via an external method. The migration isn't really a 1 for 1
situation. I am trying to address shortcomings like not having a
"dictionary" type property in Zope properties, etc.. So the implementation
will be different anyway. I guess an export to XML gives me all the data
in the objects, right? Then I could use that as a map to construct new
instances in a different implementation.
Thanks for all the answers,
