Thanks for reporting this.

To fix this what I’d like to have is a good command-line tool or library
for converting a (very) large amount of Chinese written with Han characters
into Pinyin.

Can you recommend a particular tool or library for converting to Pinyin?

I don’t care much what language the tool or library is in, as long as it
produces good Pinyin from the source.

A quick search turns up https://pypi.python.org/pypi/pinyin. Are you
familiar with that? Can you recommends it? Is there something better?
