The rev format has changed. Does this mean that migrating existing
data will involve getting each doc from oldDB, stripping the _rev, and
loading it into newDB?

It should be pretty straightforward to write a Python or Ruby script
that does this in bulk to transfer docs. It's essentially a version of
the python dump / load tools that doesn't require putting the whole db
on disk as an intermediary.

I'll volunteer but I wonder how I should handle docs with conflicts in
the oldDB?
