I, I blogged about creating an implementation [1], although passing all the tests will require more than I described here. You’re also free to consider my implementation [2].

Mostly, it’s about finding and parsing the metadata, and using this to perform one of the conversions. Corner cases, as usual, is where the complexity lies. Feel free to ask clarifying questions on this list.
