slow answer...
(because we haven't worked the upgrade script yet)
have a look at the readme for both 1.6/1.7.
(or if you have made changes to your db tables, get a sql dump - structure only)
locate the differences, and add them manually to existing tables - using phpmyadmin or similar
create the new table as per 1.7 readme.
add the indexes at bottom of readme sql bit.

and you should be ready to go.. I think. YMMV :)
