Well, we had two entries to the redesign contest, I don't remember us 
deciding on a winner. Though if I *had* to choose one it would be Martin's 
(sorry Tara).

But neither of them really inspired us to make the change at the time of the

Page is part of core, just a content type in Drupal-5, nothing to upgrade 
there (unless we did something stupid like patch it...).

Project we're not using anymore I think, so ignore that.

propstar is used for article ratings IIRC and would probably need be 
replaced with fivestar:

Which I believe depends on Voting API:
http://drupal.org/project/votingapi http://drupalmodules.com/module/voting-api

and that would mean some database wizardry migrating our ratings.

spam should probably be replaced in favour of Mollum (or possibly used in 
addition too?)

spam_surbl is just a sub module of spam so ignore that.

story is part of core - just a content type in 5, again nothing to upgrade.

trackback_blackhole also seems to be part of spam module.

Badbehavior is kind of unique, we'd probably need to get that working, just 
for performance sake.

It's probably going to be the middle of November, possibly start of December 
before I can dedicate any real time to an upgrade though :(
