  You have what appears to be a complete description of the conversion
algorithm in your message. Would you be willing to make your untility
programs available to the rest of us who have to cope with mixed-data
(NAD27, NAD83), too?

  Many areas use both older and newer data. In my former life, working with
MapInfo, I converted everything to NAD83/feet (because that's what many
regulatory agencies want) and the applicable State Plane Coordinate zone.
