During our recent conversion along these same lines we opted to use
mod_rewrite to make sure that all existing links were maintained.  We
were less concerned about the search engines as people's old bookmarks
but I believe the same ideas should apply (at least until Google and
friends re-parse the site, at which point it wont matter anymore).  We
simply redirect all requests to /somepage.asp to /somepage.php.  Granted
I'm still new to Apache and newer still to this list, so there may be
very good reasons why I did it the wrong way, but it seems to be working
well for us.
