So far, i understand that I need to warp a subdataset off the HDFEOS file to change the ellps parameter so that the subdataset is available in Lat/Long WGS84. This seems to work, and I can the reproject into UTMXX/DatumXYZ again. This requires a gdalwarp, a  gdal_translate and a further gdalwarp. is there a more direct route?

maybe this script is interesting for you:

(sorry, not Python yet :-)
