 I'm planning on doing the Shadow upgrade, so I'd better pick this up too.
 Much as I dislike hard-coded temporary files (it can set a bad example,
 although I don't see any security implications here), I'm inclined to go
 with Alexander's script because we ought to create this work-around for
 Man-DB when we install it, and the alphabetic branch hasn't installed
 mktemp at that point.
 Personally, I prefer archaic's way of running the conversion.

  Will look at this tomorrow, I need to recheck the sizes of everything.
