[wp-hackers] Making the move from categories to terms

I did see that and conveniently glossed over it assuming it didn't  
apply to me. Whatever.

So I have to ask the question. Why are we bundling an importer from  
cats to terms. It seems everyone is going to lose their categories.  
The migration needs to not be a bundled solution but part of the  
upgrade routine. Or am I still totally missing the boat here?
