Unicenter SD Packager, SXP to MSI conversion possible ?

I'm in two minds as to whether this post should go in the Package Development or Deployment forum, so {moderator} please feel free to move it if appropriate.

Is there anyone with experience of the SD Packager tool, part of the CA Unicenter suite, that could tell me whether it is possible to convert existing packages in Unicenter's native SXP format to MSI format ?

I am aware that with version 4 of SD Packager it is possible to create packages in either format, but the question I have is whether the tool has the ability to convert from SXP to MSI ?

I am asking this question on behalf of a co-worker and do not have access to SD Packager to investigate this further.

I have no clue however;
there should exist a converter according to http://supportconnectw.ca.com/public/sdo_shipit/infodocs/40sp1desc.asp
"convert a package (SXP) to an MSI", but if it works or not....I guess you have to try it and see.

Thanks very much for the pointer, it does seem to indicate some functionality exists so at least it gives me something to go on.
