Not as far as I know.  Such a thing would be very good to have though.
I don't recall off hand if there are any major hurdles like information
in pkgng packages not readily available in pkg_tools packages, but I
guess it should be possible to go a direct conversion without having to
install the packages (of either flavour).

/me appends to TODO list.
