Should be fairly painless.  However, make sure you read the
WHATSNEW for 3.0.10 and earlier release to review any semantics
changes (particularly the ones in 3.0.2a re: the password LCT).

Also make sure you backup the necessary files in $(lockdir)/*tdb
prior to the upgrade just in case you need to rollback.

cheers, jerry
