Post GUIDs should not change after they are set.  They are not a  
reliable indicator of the current URL for the post.  They are merely  
a unique token for that post.

How about a rolling upgrade that happens as posts are accessed?  That  
is, the first time a post is accessed, see if you have its title in  
your table structure.  If not, add it then.
