I really think that it's about time for us to augment the meaning of
"converters" category (right now it only says about character code
conversions).  There lots of software in ports already that are best
described by being a _converter_, and IMHO lots of our users would start
looking for one exactly in this category, and would probably get frustrated
to find out it's not there.
