frame swap - possible?

I lost touch with the 'bent scene for a few years but I'm getting active again.  Just learned about the Carbon Basso.  I have a 26/20 Giro from the early days of that model (steel frame), and it occurred to me that I could buy a Carbon Basso frame kit, transfer all my components to it, and have a cool upgrade that's several pounds lighter.   I have the mechanic skills, and looking at the photo, it seems like many if not most of the components on the old frame would work on the new; linear pulls, headset, BB, handlebars, drive train. I'd need a new seat and handlebar riser... 
No doubt there would be a couple of surprise gotchas, but overall, is this a realistic hope, or is the devil in the details?
