Going, Going, Gone!

It took nearly 24 hours all told - not including the backups, which took 48 hours themselves - but I'm on Windows 7 now, and it's working fine.

One critical point: If you have a Realtek network controller (either a card or built in to your motherboard), download the Windows 7 driver for it from the manufacturer's site before upgrading, because your network will be seriously disfunctional afterwards.  The driver that ships with Windows 7 delivers only slightly better average speeds than dial-up - even on your local network - and frequently stops working entirely for several seconds at a time.
