I didn't say I was doing it right, did I?

I want to transition from one to the other. To do that, I want to
(a) clone the existing database
(b) create a directory under ApacheRoot for the new ledger software
(c) edit the migration script
(d) run the migration script
(e) verify the resulting new ledger
(f) decommission the old ledger

(a) the migration script does.
(b) I did by un-tarring the distribution download
(c) I sent a patch for, and I'll have another look at it later, so it
    can automatically pick up the old .conf file (and, presumably, the
    user and template files)

Note that I'm not installing the new ledger software *over* the old
ledger software - I'm installing it in parallel. This may make a
difference to the migration strategy...

Script is definitely sl2ls.sh, and there are definitely dos line-endings...
