I'm about to embark on the same.  I've dumped and restored rt within
Postgres 7.1.3 with no problems.  I don't believe there are any
incompatibilities between postgres versions as far as the SQL goes, so
it should work.  Please let us know if there were problems.

You will test out your process on a development server first, right?
