How easy is it to migrate from a 1st gen Time Capsule to the latest?

I have a first gen Time Capsule, and I'm thinking of buying the latest model, but how do you go about transferring the settings from one TC to another? I'm using the TC as a wireless router as well, so all the wireless settings would need to be migrated, including security settings, MAC addresses, etc.

Is there an automated way to do this, or will I need to manually set up the new Time Capsule, by taking note of all the original TC's settings and putting them into the new one? I can't find much out there on this topic on the web. I'm hoping it will all be automated but would like to know how this would work, from anyone who might have done this themselves...
