 Lance - The only thing I'd change in your proposed solution is the second
 * If number of sidebars are not the same, move widget for first X sidebars
 directly across and put all widgets from the other sidebars into the first
 registered sidebar.

 Basically if your old theme has five sidebars and the new one has three,
 then the first sidebar would have the widgets from 1, 4, & 5, and sidebar
 2 would have have the widgets from 2, and sidebar 3 would have the widgets
 from 3.
