That's a good article. I suspect his approach worked because he was already 
intimately familiar with the site. My task would be to go into a customer's site 
that I haven't even seen yet, let alone explored internally.

However, the question is what to say to the customer, not how to do it.

You have to upgrade from the last Drupal 5 to the last Drupal 6 and then to 
Drupal 7.

I suspect I know the answer but am looking for reasons to convince a potential 
customer. The question is: Can you jump from Drupal 5 to Drupal 7 in one fell 
swoop? I see upgrading contribs as one of the biggest obstacles with API changes 
being the next one in line (assuming there is site-specific custom code).
