I feel Ton's magical arabic to roman converter warrants being honoured
with a name -- and maybe a wikipedia entry. :-).

My first thought was HART: Hospelian Arabic to Roman Transform.

Remembering this old "ton is an alien" thread, I now propose "Earthman":

  Eye-popping Alien Roman Ton Hospelian Magical Algorithm for Numerals

If you can think of a better name, please let us know. :-)
