It's possible even with the old starter kits. In a nutshell, you'll need to use SQL Server Management Studio (there is an Express/free version) to attach the MDF database that sits in ~/App_Data. Once attached, you can use SQL Server Manager Studio's export options to transition the schema & data to a *real* SQL Server.
Let me know if these instructions aren't helpful. I can probably blog this procedure or record a video.
P.S. I've heard talk about us shipping scripts with future SDK's so they are less tied to a specific type/version of database. As it stands, it's a pain for you to convert and it's a pain for us to create something that is easily consumable for customers. However, I don't have an ETA on this.
