You're welcome. 
I have meanwhile enhanced the code so the sequences for the ID field are also updated at the end
of a table conversion, but that is not yet committed. I will commit that tonight.

I've also had to implement some changes to limit memory usage; 
The same base code is used to convert the FPC testsuite from MySQL to PG. 
Since 500 million records do not fit in memory, I had to use some more advanced 
mechanism to limit memory usage.
