I think I've done the reverse-mapping you want.  In my .emacs 
(http://svn.red-bean.com/repos/kfogel/trunk/.emacs), start at the function 
`kf-pinyin-from-char'.  See also the code to build `kf-quail-inverted-map' 
right above it.

I'm happy to answer any questions, of course.

Best regards and 新年快乐,
