Move exchange 2007 mailboxes from one DB to another DB

I'm looking for a powershell command to bulk move mailboxes in Exchange 2007.  I want to move them from one store DB to another on the same server.  I simply want to do this to perform a defrag without completely taking the stores offline.  We had just implemented a policy that purged over half the email.  I would like to do this without having to use a .csv file.  I would guess there is a way to do a get-mailbox from one store and then pipe that in the move mailbox command to the new store.

A proper example below. Change the server, dbnames.

Get-Mailbox Database DCEXCH\First Storage Group\Mailbox Store (DCEXCH) | Move-Mailbox TargetDatabase E2K7\First Storage Group\Mailbox Database MaxThreads 10

-MaxThreads 10 will start 10 mailbox move threads (normal is 4). Max value you can ahve is 30.

Thanks.  I will give this a try hopefully tonight.  I figured it should be fairily simple, but just wasn't sure on the command.  So if I don't specify the MaxThreads will that default to 30?
