I made a basic layout for the proposal and made it into points for ease of
It would be great if you had a look at it and put in your feedbacks. I would
love to know your ideas and make this into a useful resource for anyone who
finally does this project :)

   1. Backup of db n a way to search n replace the domain name in the backed
   up sql file or replicated [dbprefix]_wpmove_[table] table.
   2. Look for serialized names n handle them accordingly
   3. Set-up ftp move / zip-unzip package move
   4. Keep a check on the server load
   5. Make progress bars and other UI elements to help the novice through
   the process
   6. Roundup n check for single user blogs if all the above points are met
   n make all bug fixes with #1 to #5
   7. Introduce multi user single server support (Extra point for now as I
   already have found a lot of issues in the first 5 points)
   8. Profiling the server types and best possible way out of all the
   functions and options we make

If you like the idea and want to know more about it drop by
(do post your comments :D )
