Not to further the argument because of the +1 from you but I think it is 
important to keep in mind that the less work we make it to upgrade, the 
more likely it is they will.

It took forever (and we still have stragglers) to get people past 8.2 
because of the casting change in 8.3. This is a similar problem in that 
if we want them to upgrade to take advantage of features, we have to 
make it so the least amount of work possible is needed to make that 
upgrade happen.

Rewriting many thousands of lines of dynamic sql to upgrade to 9.2 is 
certainly not doing that :).
