If you don't break the API to badly it will probably not be much work.
Pretty much all packaging work that had to be done was already done for
0.11 and should help making packaging of future releases a bit easier.

There should be plenty of time to get 0.12 or higher into 12.04, the
feature freeze will probably be end of February 2012, the release will
be end of April.
