If you do the export to XML, rather than the binary pickle format of a
zexp file, then you should be able to examine the structure in an
editor, and even (in theory, anyway), transform it into a form
compatible with your new product version.

YMMV as to whether the effort here outweighs writing BBB / migration
code in your product.
