And done.

Technical details:
All reiserfs filesystems that were on the host have been replaced with
ext3 filesystems, and the host has been converted fully from i386 to
amd64.  I'll probably update and add some more details on:
But the "up"grade (/crossgrade) from i386 to amd64 went very smoothly
(more smoothly than my earlier test run on a scratch test VM to
investigate the feasibility/difficulty).
