I know I'm a little late to the main discussion, but FYI there is a
project, pym, which claims to do some conversion:
http://code.google.com/p/pym/  It's only available from svn, and
there's no claim about how well it works, but it might be a good
starting point.  I believe it's MIT licensed, so no issue there.  Plus
the authors might be good contacts.
