Yes you are right. Is very dangerous. But i use a adapted script to make
the migration.
I don have the knowledge to do by myself.

I lost some locale data in the migration.

If run this in rtdb database:

 update attachments set content = replace(content, 'u', '*')

I believe that these changes are so located, are not capable by
themselves alter
the overall operation off RT.

For example, all the characters in words on content column  that i change,
and reindexed now appears in the search.

Im only do that on the test rt installation, not in the production
enviroment. Yet :D

Un saludo.
