       I agree totally.  There are many scientists who learn how to write 
programs to help with their scientific work.  I doubt that there are too 
many programmers who go out and get an additional degree in biology, 
chemistry, or physics to help with their programming work.  And there 
appears to me to often be a gap between how people in the two different 
worlds go about getting things done.

       Since this program translation will be done by someone who actually 
wrote program code for a living it will at least actually look like a 
program when it is finished.  There will be indentation etc.
