Someone will probably correct me if I'm wrong, but I'm fairly sure
this is all handled by the WordPress export and import system, so it
might be easiest to use that. When you import a WordPress XML file
it'll replace all instances of the domain name you're exporting from
with the domain name you're exporting to.
