I'd definitely be using the new director to do this, not the old one -
I don't need to do downloads at this point so there's no benefit to
*not* using the new one. And if there's one thing I've learned about
upgrades, it's to avoid running the existing code as much as possible.
That way you have a way to fix bugs in the upgrader.

I'd like to know too - but if no one has, I'll be giving it a try soon
Thanks for your help, Ian.
