Our site, www.openlp.org, was originally done in 4.7, and has a number of
contributed modules, like the i18n stuff, and actually upgraded VERY
easily. I was expecting breakage, but there was none.

Very true. The Drupal project recommends you disable all contributed
modules before upgrading. You'll probably want to do that and then install
the updated modules after you've done the core upgrade.
