Does anyone have any advice on migrating a userbase from Wordpress to Orchard?

I am very impressed with Orchard and I am a C# and MVC developer.  It is a perfect fit for the finance site I am working on.  Regretably when the site started we used Wordpress and there are a large number of paid subscribers already on the wordpress version of the site.

Are there any tools for migrating a user base from Wordpress to Orchard.  If no, are there any tips, tricks or advice that can be given to make the process go as smooth as possible?  The primary goal is to make it as smooth a transition as possible for the customers.  We don't want to lose paying subscribers.

You mean the user accounts themselves? I don't know how WordPress stores their users but Orchard is fairly standard for that, it has hashed or encoded passwords with configurable algorithm and salt. I've had some success moving a list of users with their passwords from a legacy MVC app to Orchard. I suppose WP would be similar.
