Daniel is absolutely right (and the points I'm sending his way are well deserved!). The skinning is the most breaking change in the Q1 release, as many CSS classes have been renamed, and many properties were moved to the "base" stylesheet for each control.
Regarding the development effort required for the upgrade, it would be minimal compared to the cost of the skin upgrade from 2008.Q3 to 2009.Q1.
