I could construct one, but this is not a request that has come up
before.  It would require a significant amount of new work.

It's bloody huge and it takes forever.

My full conversion runs take about 10 hours on a dual-core 2.66Ghz
machine, and I bought a terabyte drive so I wouldn't run out of space
while doing them.

I should have more exact numbers for you in nine hours or so.
