A couple of scripts and process' have been proposed, including one that 
Bill did on the wiki just the other day, perhaps you could start there 
and maybe combine the efforts ? Bill has been putting in a fair bit of 
effort into the upgrade process and is quite receptive to most ideas.

There was another, longer and more involved route, posted to the docs 
list - not sure if its on the wiki as yet.

just one comment - I'd really like to see a functional process that can 
move most peoples platform from 4.4 to 5.0 :)
