yes, it migrates conflicts. It does document requests with

GET /db/docid?open_revs=all&attachments=true

which gives a copy of each doc rev leaf node (that is the head rev and
any conflict revs).

Once I figured out that the same request works for conflicted and
normal docs, the script got much simpler.

Jan, what about blog comments? ;)
