Currently we don't support it.  Even migrating to Windows, running the
MS tool there and then replicating back won't work, as we don't like the
incremented replication epoch counter. 

It needs someone to spend a fair effort in our replication code.  We
need someone committed to making this happen to learn enough about this
area and to follow though with working and tested patches.
