Adding Harwell-Boeing support in PETSc?

It seems that someone always wants me to either give them a matrix in
Harwell-Boeing format, or to try experimenting with a matrix that they give me
in Harwell-Boeing format. I would prefer that the format just go away, but
since this doesn't seem to be happening, I would like to have some PETSc
support mechanisms for reading and writing the beasts. I'd like to have
something like a PETSC_VIEWER_HB for writing them out, and I'd like to have
MatLoad() be able to use the viewer to load the matrices as well.
I thought I might look into adding something like this, but before I waste
time with it, I thought I would ask to folks if either a) they think it is a
bad idea or b) someone has already got the code for this.
