    Well, I kind of have a solution for you.

    WorldEdit has a tool where you can select an area and use the command //regen (with two slashes) to revert it to its "natural state" (before any humans or entities modified it). If it's a 1.8.1 world, but you now run craftbukkit for 1.0, and you use //regen, it'll regen it according to a 1.0 seed.

    So basically, say you have a 1.8.1 world where there was a forest biome. If you //regen it, it may turn into a desert or a swamp or it might stay a forest. But, it'll be in its new 1.0 state.

    This has to be done for relatively small bits at a time - there's no way to do the whole world at once without losing your creations, and your server would have to be pretty powerful to be able to do more than, say, a few million blocks at once.

    Hope I helped! :)
