Just a couple of words having gone through one wiki migration (Ferenc
might have his say as well, since he went through 2)

Before spending more days, you might want to look at the amount of
useful pages to be moved. You might end up doing less work through
manual migration than scripting, migrating automatically and reviewing
all pages with possible retouch fixes.

Think also that migrating pages is something anybody can do, as opposed
to go through an automated migration.

If we have i.e. 70 pages that are really useful and you have say 5
volunteers, do the math. If there are other potential useful pages to be
moved then people can always go and copy&paste&fix them.

That page (I know it very well)  ;)  lists 6 useful pages in English +
lots of probably pretty useless pages today in English + many pages in
other languages that could be handled by the speakers of those languages
in the way they prefer.
