Due to time constraints I was only able to re-saved about 30 major

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 ;-)
lol.. I think with the change mentioned below I can do a quick pass of all apps and go through my now well known set of base programs to test them in short order. No need to delay the release. Everything works fine so far.

In order to better test the
final result I was wondering if we could add a new argument to
fdesign. A "-migrate" maybe.

The intent here would be to convert the 13000 or later series of .fd
files to the latest release and then I could execute the -migrate
and then -convert so the new code reflects fdesign's latest
conversion process. This would simulate me saving each file and
recompiling. In my case I don't care that the old .fd file are over
written. Indeed I would prefer that so at the end of my testing I
have exactly what I would get if I were working on a project with
the latest fdesign.

I can try to add this myself. I believe I found all the routines
that perform the conversion and save forms.
Sounds like a good idea to me. If you already have patched
fdesign for this just give the diffs, 
I have no patch as yet. I just perused the code to see if I could identify the sequence of events.
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).
I will take a look and see what I can cobble together.
