Yeah, this issue is still kind of hanging in the air with no good answer. You can try this out: http://www.shopping-cart-migration.com/shopping-cart-migration-options/223-magento-to-magento-migration. This extension works for all Magento versions. You can try it out with the demo migration for free and see how it actually works.
