Don't set up new phone from google backup?

I have my Droid X2 configured to back up my settings to google. This has been useful several times! Now that I'm moving to an S3, I'm not sure I want to restore everything from what I had on my X2. I think I want to start clean with apps and I don't know what settings will transfer from gingerbread to ICS, but I'd like to configure my new phone from scratch.

I'm not talking about my google apps (contacts, calendar, email) -- that stuff I definitely want to sync. I'm talking about the apps & settings.

Anyone else think about this? How would I even make this happen? If I just turn off "back up my data", will the new phone not pick up anything from the old?
