*this* close to running my little transfer-follows utility except I can't find how to follow someone in the API directly and the (somewhat broken) Mastodon::Client Perl library only knows how to follow based on the numeric ID (which only works for following on your own instance because, uh, I think the library is old enough there was only the one...)

I mean... surely clients don't have to go the ActivitySub route for cross-site follows, right?

(suddenly feel like I'm in the Anakin-and-Padme meme)

No, wait, that's still ID-only. Yeah, that has to be ActivitySub, doesn't it. 😒

@gamehawk you can do search for each account url and get their id on the new instance that way?
