You should not encounter any problems with moving skiplist and plain 
text type databases. Also there should not be any problems moving the 
mailbox data (messages, cache, index etc.)

There might be some problems moving the berkeleydb databases. At least 
earlier the only way to move berkeleydb databases is that you dump them in 
the old architechture/os and recreate them from the dump/restore files in 
the new architechture/os.
