We are speaking of potentially several hundred files. It's part of the
scientific work of the user of the last nine years... Part of the
problem is, that his Python/Numeric installation is 32bit and he has the
last 32bit computer in the department. This installation doesn't work
with a 64bit Linux even with all 32bit compatibility libraries

Which conversion script do you mean? I couldn't find any conversion
script that works or comes close to working.
