Upgrading from Roller 1.0 doesn't fix root folder name

                 Key: ROL-1536
             Project: Roller
          Issue Type: Bug
         Environment: RHEL4, Tomcat 5.5, Java 1.5.0
            Reporter: Eric L. Wittle
            Assignee: Roller Unassigned

After upgrading to roller 3.0, the template display of my bookmark folders/links was imperfect.
All of the folders and links were nested within an item named 'top'.

I looked at the velocity macro showBookmarkLinksList, and it appeared to be special-casing
a folder named 'root'. When I created a new weblog, a folder named 'root' appeared in the
database. So expecting that this was sufficient evidence that the name of the root level folder
had changed at some point, I executed the following sql:

update folder set name='root' where name='top';

I restarted roller, and now magically my blogroll folders are no longer nested inside a folder
titled 'top'; each folder and/or bookmark within my root bookmark folder has its own link.
I believe this is the intended behavior.

It seems like there are two possible solutions. One is to add 'top' to the special case logic
in the macro alongside 'root', the other would be to rename the root link in the upgrade sql
