I think so! We certainly do.

In zopectl debug

I don't know.

Sorry , I don't know  . ;-(

How about this for an idea:

In the original Plone 2.0.5/Zope 2.7.x instance, create a new Plone site 
, called , say ,'secondsite'.
The Members folder in secondsite should automatically be a Large Plone 
Folder. Now copy all your individual Members folders from the original 
site to secondsite's Members folder. (through te ZMI)
Then delete Members out of the original site, and copy entire Members 
folder from secondsite to your original site.

Now you should be left with , in your original site, Members being a 
'Large Plone Folder' , and containing all the individual directories.

If that works, then you're ready to migrate.......
