i don't know about that.  i think it depends on the situation.  

when the as/400 first came out, that was all there was.  there was/is a
migration aid that does a good job of analysing the information on the
36, setting up the information for the conversion, and then compiling it
on the as/400.  you go in and subtype everything and away it went.

it even recreated the objects for the dfu's

that would be the way i'd go if:

you had the source code.
you knew the source code was clean and matched the objects.  
you didn't have any unsupported features, such as wsu. 

i know it's sometimes tramatic for users to get used to a new system,
but i never saw any that had trouble after the first few days.  i
remember when we switched our own payroll service stuff over, the first
day the girl was throwing things in frustration over the differences in
the spool files and message handling, but by the end of the week, you'd
have thought the whole idea to switch it over was hers.
