I tried the plan and up to here things looks good. On the new site the
Members were in a Large Plone Folder and they could be copied from the
other site.

Unfortunately this didn't work right out of the box. "Cannot paste
subobject type 'Large Plone Folder'." But ...

... copying in the 'Large Plone Folder' type from the 'secondsite'
plus allowing the 'Plone Site' type to contain 'Large Plone Folders'
did the trick.

I haven't gone through all the other steps in performing the
migration. I just jumped directly to portal_migration. It succeeded
and now I have an ATBTreeFolder for Members. So it looks very
promising. (Shouldn't portal_migration be enough now when the Members
folder is in place or do I need to do the portal_atct stuff also?)
