I decided that I could hack update with some work to just forcibly do a 1.0 to
2.0.5 upgrade on just those lists... Or, plan B, which is what I actually ended up
doing because I figured it'd be faster, was set up another directory, grap the Release_1_0
cvs image, build and install that, drop the lists into it, then install the Release_2_5 image
on top of it, and let update do what it normally does...  Since I could do it all in the 
background it took less of my real time than hacking the python would...
