Then it's at least no more in an alpha state.

What kind of oddities have you encountered? Maybe it's something that
can be fixed.

Depending on the size of your environment (users, groups, machine
accounts, etc.) it's worth to start from scratch. For a larger
environment, maybe we can find a way to export the majority of objects,
provision with the old domain SID, etc. and try to import again.

I've never tried that. So I can't say, if it's working or where the
pitfalls are. But it sounds like something interesting to try out :-)
