The objective should be to move complete. My dream would be to make the 
transformation automatically. For that we should focus to have the 
tools, and then parse the information we need from the files we have.
It will take some time, thought till it realy works and we fixed all 
bugs from the transformation.

My 2 cents how to do this.-

All the best
