just as a note, and it depends how your going to export/import your data,
but if Matt decides to go with a non LTS, then mythbuntu 11.10 does not
have the backup/restore option in mythbuntu-control-center. That said, you
can pull out the .sql.gz (i think thats the name), out of the tar.gz that
myth-CC backup creates and restore it via command line rather than GUI.

i've been doing a bit of work on my mythtv setup and the backup/restore
process is very straight forward, and in the past i've successfully
migrated from 0.23 to 0.24 without issue (unbelievably easy - update to
0.24, run the FE, and it'll prompt to update the sql schema if required).
it'd be worth getting your existing database as an offline copy though just
incase things go wrong.

also note, that the backup will not get your recorded programs. you will
have to manually move them yourself.
