That may work. How much does this do? Are comments, categories and URLs 
kept intact?

How does it handle embedded markup? RSS2 doesn't include any HTML tags. 
I don't want to lose all the HTML.

A partial solution may be good enough, and this may be that. I only need 
to do this once, and I can clean it up manually. I just need to know how 
much clean up to plan for.
