Wouldn't waste time on this, see Sovainfo (talk) 08:47, 16 August 2013 (CDT)

Thanks Sovainfo. Yes, I broke it out of the Upgrading page. The pull request you referenced will make it into 3.2 and at that point it should be a non-issue for people upgrading to 3.2+ versions from 2.5. I see you also posted to the forum article where this came from originally. IMO, what we really need is a script to correct all the problems with the ids, move the user created ones and search for missing missing core menus. Thanks again.

Consider that the wrong solution! Stop abusing the rdbms. There should be no other meaning attached to the id. In relational speak, you need an attribute that contains that information. Combining information is not done in the relational world. Sofar I haven't seen any requirement for identifying cms delivered menuitems apart from user added menuitems. If there is, you need to add an attribute, not putting meaning in the sequence number. The solution is to remove the id from the column list and its value from the values list.
