I wouldn't look at this as *just* converting so as "to use the newest
thing."  Converting over to a "batteries-included" module means that you
wont have to chase this problem again with 2.3.3, or 2.4, or 3.0, or...  How
many times is it worth going through this hassle (which usually occurs when
it's most urgent, and you have the fewest spare cycles available to deal
with it), instead of clearing up and getting rid of a dangling project
dependency?  (Should also simplify testing, packing, distribution, and
support, so depending on your product environment, there are likely to be
some non-development savings to be had, too.)

Just my $0.02,
