Upgrading directly from 8i to 10g -- is it possible?

I'm currently running 8.1.7... We are thinking of upgrading to 10g early next year. A major consideration for us is the actual migration process. What's involved in the migration/upgrade from 8i to 10g?
I haven't seen the 10g documentation yet, but if the upgrade is like previous versions, it should be pretty easy if you use the Database Upgrade Assistant (DBUA). The DBUA handles all of the details for you. Without having seen the docs yet, I would be prepared to upgrade to 9.2.0 as an interim step before proceeding to 10g. However, it may be possible to upgrade from 8.1.7 to 10g directly. I'll know more once 10g hits the market officially.
