    I understand that Lion has changed the way Migration works. Does anyone happen to know if Lion will support the selective migration of apps from an existing system to a new one? For example, I'd like make a fresh start and migrate only Mail data and iPhoto data and select other programs+data.

    I'm using a 2008 Mac Pro that has been migrated from several previous systems. Frankly, I'd like to get rid of a lot of junk.

    Just start fresh and copy the appropriate Application Support folders over from the old system?

    Probably not. Who knows where all the meta data lives. I'm surprised that Apple doesn't support something like this.

    I really don't feel like losing hundreds of email and other items.
