It all depends on your implementation. 1.0 -> 1.1 took me about half an hour. However my 
approach has been to abstract as much as possible incase people make changes to the spec 
(I've also had to deal with 'broken' messages). I parse the CAP file with regex matches and 
XPath, store it in internal data structures, and from that I can squirt it out to whatever format 
I want by iterating the internal lists.
