The major obstacle I see with customers upgrading from 2 is missing at least in The change to
unicode in file names. When you upgrade naively, you get garbled umlauts, as
the files are encoded in some codepage. People then store new files with UTF-8
encoding as they don't have 'unix charset' set correctly. The end result is a
mix of both encodings that is *very* hairy to split again.

You could mention Björn Jacke's convmv.
