Now this sounds like an excellent idea.

I thought this morning that if someone that knows the project structure 
could write conversion code, say 0.99 to 3 and 2.x to 3 it would be 
great (0.99 to 2.x) is also a problem for some of the users on the 64 
Studio forums.  They get around that by having 0.99 and 2.x installed.
