Hi Serge,

If you plan to do more tests then I'll definitely wait for
your results! It's not that it would be a lot of extra time
compared to the 11.5 years it's now since version 1.0 ;-)

Sounds like a good idea to me. If you already have patched
fdesign for this just give the diffs, otherwise I think it
also shouldn't be too much of a problem (if I remember cor-
rectly there's one single place in the function for saving
where it is checked if fdesign is in 'convert' mode, and if
it is, writing out the .fd file is skipped - that would be
the place where checking for 'migrate-mode' probably should
be added).
