Sounds good to split it up into multiple hackathons.

Having previously done a sf-active to drupal migration I'm not sure it's
worth the extra steps of this intermediate conversion (yet another
schema to have to know, and more insert into select from queries to
write). Maybe you just need me to document sf-active as I've been doing
on IRC today w/ occam? But if we do want or need this step then I'd ask
what's the schema for this intermediate representation?
