All went well. Got the shifters today in the mail, and had them on the bike and working in a couple hours of easy, methodical work. Didn't want to blow it, it being my first time at this, so I took my time. No surprises, thankfully!
The instructions were dense--tons of stuff there, much of it for things that weren't specific to my situation, but after reading it all I was able to pick out the parts that made sense for my case. Bottom line is that they work well and shift great. They're actually a little heavier than the old ones--they're a near perfect match, the design hasn't changed much in the 6 intervening model years, but they're obviously more robust. I may have to do a little adjusting here and there, but for now, they're fine. I'm happy!
Thanks for the help!
