This particular formulation seems nice to me.  Better use a longer name
though ("pikaconv"?); pc means "pascal compiler"... :-)

Er, well my point was that for various reasons, tla basically needs the
functionality built-in for its own use.  However, presuming that tla
uses hacker-lab functions for 95% of the work anyway, perhaps the
source-code duplication would be minimal.

Packaging/dependcy issues could perhaps be minimized by shipping
pikaconv along with tla.
