So it turns out this is actually a complicated change. Migration is handled on a per-project basis but upgrading to vs2010 needs to be done on a per-solution basis. As such, there is no simple and clean way to detect that one of the projects has been migrated and therefore the entire solution needs to be moved to VS2010.

This would need to be planned out before being implemented. I'll defer on this one for now. While it isn't the greatest UX, it's not completely awful.

Can't you query MD to see if the project is part of a solution and then test that solution, and if 2k8, upgrade? it's a project change that kicks this off anyway, for example, if you add a folder to a project, then it tells you the solution needs to be upgraded to vs 2k10. folder info is stored in the project, not the solution.
