there are different modules in it which do conversion.
a sample would be ISCII to Unicode.. this can be adapted to convert
say from Gujarati codes to Devanagari codes..
actually in most cases it 95% of conversion could do by simply
subtracting/adding 128*n - where n is distance from devanagari page.
 see http://www.unicode.org/charts/
so just shifting the codes does 95% of the work, for some characters &
combinations you would need to treat specially.
