Just so--I still do a fair amount of conversion and a lot of it is very
personal stuff.   I may spot-check the output in places to make sure
that it's not garbage, but otherwise, it's strictly not for my eyes.

Back when I used to do forensic processing for various law enforcement
organizations, I was sometimes called upon to help reconstruct data.
The only time that I paid attention to one such process, it was the
journal of a sexual predator.  It made me ill to read it and I vowed
never to do that again--and I didn't.
