Some scripts (maybe and, I'm not sure) may require 
modification to work on this location. I will check all scripts for

I don't know right now. I didn't look Slashcode yet, but I think that 
not much can be done to facilitate the migration. To be true, a CMS 
implementation will require some (hard) work, so I don't recommend we 
think on it by now. Just some tasks we will need to do: create a 
mime2mysql conversion script, to automatically readd old news to the 
CMS database and enable Perl and/or PHP on all mirrors.
