Check that all uses of RoutablePart are well managed if they are replaced by AutoroutePart

Before testing some migration scenarios, I guess you will have to check that each code that uses RoutablePart is still working if replaced by AutoroutePart.

For example, don't forget the XmlRpcHandlers that publish a blogpost via XmlRpc.

Yes, the RSD routes have been taken into account.

The thing is, previously a lot of these features relied too heavily on RoutePart (and certain other related bits of code). The way the system has been changed there's no longer a reliance on any route mechanism; you can even switch off Autoroute entirely and everything will work, you'll just have ugly MVC routes instead of friendly URLs.

I have some information on how existing module authors can remove reliance on RoutePart and therefore not hit problems in 1.4. I need to tidy up the document and post it here.
