I "personally" am not so sure I'd want to trust any program to do that
for me. Given the changes that the command-line flags support in
0.7.x, I would think it would be better to have a good page in the
README and on the Wiki that showed OLD usage, and then NEW usage. My
concern would be that a program that tried to do it automatically
would get hung on all the normal parsing problems (wierd character
names in the file path, custom Network Connection names, etc) that it
seems kills most cross platform tools.
I will be happy, if you agree, to start working on that page for folks
to review to make sure I get it right.
Let me know,
