Upgrade or start fresh?

I have a fairly large subscription based site (http://thehappyscientist.com) that is currently running Drupal 6. I want to upgrade to Drupal 7, and at the same time, I want to rebuild much of the site. Over the past seven years, the site has changed, and many of the pages are out of date, old formats, old content types, etc. This seems like a good time to do some house cleaning.

Facebook style calling out user by posting @user

Corolla color configuration - extra variables

I have corolla sub-theme with color profile configured in /sub-theme_folder/color/colors.inc
Now I would like to allow administrator to change colors of h1,h2,h3,... so I would like to create variables for each of heading styles.
Additionally I have multi-site configuration with auto-generating colors.css files after theme re-save in /sites/site_a/color/auto-generated-folder/colors.css which override standard colors.css from template.

Best way to 301 re-direct 400 of my 1000 websites pages?

I want to fix the silo structure of my websites urls to make them more seo friendly.

This will involve 301 re-directing about 400 existing pages to 400 new pages i'll be creating with better seo friendly urls. I will also be setting the canonical urls of the old pages to point to the new ones.

What's the best plugin to create so many 301 re-directs?
