File system conversion utility

'ConvertFS' is a very simple but extremely powerful toolset which allows users to convert one file system to another. It creates a sparse image of a block device, mkfs a secondary filesystem on it, mounts it, moves files from the primary filesystem to the mounted image and then maps the image to the device. It works for converting virtually any filesystem type to virtually any one as long as they are both block-oriented and supported by GNU/Linux for read/write, and as long as primary filesystem supports sparse files.
