Is there a viable way to "sysupgrade" from ar71xx to ath79?

Even if it would require a model-by-model "update map" for the 
lower-level stuff (LEDs, switch ports?, etc), that would be valuable. 
Otherwise, it will be difficult for people with fleets of ar71xx devices 
to remotely switch them to ath79...
