I just took two kegs to a local welder. He cut out the top, added the fittings I wanted and handed it back in a pretty painless way for $80. I had started out using a jigsaw with the appropriate blade, and while the cutting was pretty easy (relatively speaking), the blade was too wide to effect a small enough circle.
