page-title d7 upgrade issue

After upgrading from D6 to D7 via Drush, Page Title displayed the token pattern code rather than text in page titles; i.e., the page title was shown literally as [page-title] | [site-name] rather than the actual page title | site name. Apparently Page Title/Token syntax has changed between D6 and D7 and the syntax was not updated automatically on site upgrade; D6 [page-title] is now D7 [current-page:page-title] and [site-name] is now [site:name].

It took me quite some time to realize why page titles weren't being displayed correctly; I hope this behavior can be corrected or documented prominently to ease the upgrade process.

Title: Page Title token syntax not updated in site upgrade from D6 to D7 » Page Title Upgrade from D6 to D7 - replace tokens with new syntax.

This is an important thing to add to the update - however it'd be very difficult to cover ALL tokens (in a FROM -> TO array map)..

Did some research and it looks like token has already solved the hard part in it's own upgrade path.

Thanks for this patch! It seems to work, although I did have to remove the following line as it was throwing a 'cannot redeclare' error on update.php:

include(drupal_get_path('module','token') . '/token.install');

Guess that line wasn't needed for whatever reason those install functions weren't available when I was working on it...

Here's an update.
