I seem to recall from an SMPTE meeting regarding off-speed techniques of
format conversion, that someone (I think it was Sony) showed a box that
does exactly that.  It'll take the ports from a standard editing system (I
think PAL) and do the appropriate timing/timecode conversions for control
of the off-standard machine.  Seemed like a cool idea.
