Well, much of it is just a matter of copy-pasting. :) You copy the
test from Grok, and then copy the right code, either from Grok or from
Five and often a bit of both, to make it work. The trick i to know
what code to copy.

The thing where you can't do this is as you mentioned the indexes,
etc. But much of it is going to be quite easy to do, especially if
it's done while people who have worked on Grok and Five i around to
point out the places. :) If I gets worked on during Grokkerdam and
then during the Black Forest sprint I think that is going to go a
*very* long way.

Well for me, I just can't come up with a better name. :)
