+1 for second option: there may be many users who had accounts on the old
site who are no longer active. on-demand migration gives us better data
about the who is actively interested in p2pu. it also actively draws users
to interact with the new site. given how awesome the new site is, i think
this will also serve as an all around good advertisement for where we are as
an organization. it may re-engage people who have lost their way and fallen
off the free-learning path! :p.
