Migrating from 1.4 to 2.2 is not quite *that* simple, but it isn't hard.
A while ago I put together some detailed how-to notes: let me dig them
up and I'll get back to you.
Some people will tell you that yes, you can just install-and-go. It's
certainly possible to *for some users*, but there are corner cases that
can complicate things -- which is why a checklist is useful.
