I've read the "official" upgrade guide which uses Nicholas Jones' upgrade scripts (at http://www.gentoo.org/doc/en/upgrade-to-gentoo-1.4.xml) and am planning on following this to make the move.

So first of all, is there any problem in using this (and following it to the letter)?

My main question is: How important is it to do an "emerge -u world" before starting the upgrade procedure? What are the reasons for doing so?

I always assumed that once I have gcc3.x in place that everything will have to be rebuilt anyway so I haven't done an emerge world in quite some time. Needless to say I have a lot of packages installed and about 100+ need to be upgraded :)

I decided to just go for it (without doing an emerge -u world) and I'm in step3 and things are going pretty well from the looks of it. Only at package 10 of 47 but I'm hoping the rest go just as smoothly :)

It would be great if you could tell us when you're ready (and how everything), just so us holding off on the upgrade have atleast one success story to set our hopes too.. =)

Emerging glibc-2.3.1-r2 failed during step3 however I just completed a manual emerge of that package and it was successful. I'm now running step3 again. Hopefully it won't break anywhere this time..

Step3 completed successfully the second time around. Everything is looking good!
