I think there is a strong interest in this. One of the main obstacles  
to changing environments is inertia and familiarity. My advisor  
repeatedly expresses his wish to give Python another try, and having  
an easy way to show him how his existing scripts translate would be  
awesome.

Of course there are caveats, corner cases where such translations will  
fail, but a fairly foolproof method of converting simple scripts would  
be just fantastic. I imagine if you've gotten further along than  
previous attempts you'll receive a lot of street cred on this list and  
probably a lot of patches to make things work better. :)
