Huzzah! Huzzah! With you all the way!

It's been a while since I did a conversion, but isn't there a migration aid
kind of thing? And I think it can identify things that need changing. So
run the tool and fix what needs to be.

DDS goes to the 400 with no problem. DFUs are pretty ugly, but then they
are anyway (IMO).

BTW, no qrey hairs here (yet), but then, remember my Scandinavian heritage.
