I'm with David on this one. We just migrated uPortal 3 from 1.0 to 1.1
and the approach was pretty much this. Delete pluto-1.0.1.jar, add pluto
1.1 jars (container, descriptor-api, descriptor-impl, taglib, util, ant)
and then start fixing errors and implementing the pluto 1.1 services
your portal needs to implement.

I will say it is actually (or at least for us was) easier than we
expected to get everything working under pluto 1.1 as the integration
points are much more well defined and the amount of pluto related code
needed to write is fairly small.

Not sure how much help that is going to be but I will also say that the
effort is worth it. We ended up being able to remove a significant
amount of code by upgrading and simplify much of our framework.
