There really isn't - part of the justification is that the 2.0 API has 
been largely untouched for a year or more, with a few small exceptions. 
As far as signature changes, there are a few (Encoder.canonicalize being 
the biggie) but aside from the changes to the ESAPI Locator class, they 
should be backwards compatible. I can assure you that if you were to 
undertake such a task as creating a upgrade document would be much 
appreciated by the community. :)

Keep us posted on your progress regardless and feel free to hit us up 
with any questions you may have!
