Did you not read the DETAILS file that came with the script? If so,
and you need more detail than that, I think you'll need to refer to the
source code for the script, which does include some helpful comments.
To add new converters to the script, I'd suggest following existing
examples in the code.

If David had more detailed documentation than that, I'm sure he'd have
made it available. Perhaps you could be more explicit about what it
is that seems to be missing from the current documentation.
