I'll investigate the problem this week somewhere, it looks like I've
forgotten to write some update code (although that would be somewhat
strange, because I've successfully upgraded some older databases myself,
but it may be that those were in a different state than yours) and will
keep you and Marc up-to-date on the progress. Would you (and Marc) mind
to do a beta test before I do a new release so we can make sure the
problem is really gone?

Let's try to fix it first. ;)

I would suggest to avoid using Python scripts as much as possible.
Although they are a nice quick'n'dirty way to get things done, they're
slow, hard to maintain, and the restrictions on the code are really
annoying at times. The boilerplate of Product (fs) code is also
annoying, but once you have a template somewhere you'll find it's way
nicer to develop on the filesystem, and things like dir() will just work
(don't expect reading results to be easy though, with acquisition and
