Yuck (though I see the problem). Might I suggest that you just
automatically move the old .wmii/ to .wmii/wmii_conf_old/ or something &
warn the user? This is what I've been doing since the config breaks so
often between snaps... It's then pretty easy to copy over any of the
things which haven't changed; certinally not ideal but it works.
