Upgrading from 2.16.7 to 2.18

Hello there :)

The Debian packaging for 2.18 is ok and might enter experimental soon,
most of packaging issues were solved but one: 

When Upgrading from <= 2.16.7 to 2.18, I'd like to keep the old 'params'
file in order to restore the user defined settings (those that are
available through editparams.cgi).

Sadly, using a 2.16 version of 'params' in Bugzilla 2.18 does not seam
to be possible: CGIs say that there is something wrong with the params
file and ask for a second run of checksetup.pl.

When I run a second time checksetup.pl, the params file is the 2.18
default one and that mean that everything that was saved before is reset
to default 2.18 values.

Is there something in the way for migrating 'params' file from Bugzilla
version prior to 2.18 to 2.18? If not, is there a simple way to do that? 

I may contribute to such a development if needed.
