I just switched my laptop over. Some notes based on that:

My /home is a cryptdisk setup - I'm usually prompted for a passphrase during
boot by /etc/init.d/cryptdisks but this didn't occur when booting with
upstart. (Do you want bugs filed for this in launchpad?)

My wireless is WPA'd and that didn't come up - I'm using the new style wpa
configuration via /etc/network/interfaces

Besides that, it all seemed to work pretty nicely. (although getting a
login prompt on a VT that early was something of a shock :-) )
