Is there anything *specific* that I should expect to bite me there, or
just a lot of generalist teeth?

What a coincidence! That's what I have! :-)

While I'm puzzling over migration: If I call

  $ticket->Create(id => 5, ...)

where there's no ticket #5 yet but there are tickets >5, it still
creates the next ticket per auto_increment. Import() works as
expected. Is that a documentation bug or a code bug?
