Command line POM generator?

I seem to remember there was a command-line tool to generate POMs from Visual Studio project files.  Right now I only see the VS addin which requires you to click through the UI.

Does the command-line tool exist?  If not, how coupled to the UI is the current importer and how hard would it be to get it working at the command line?  It doesn't need to be interactive, it can just fail if the info it needs is not provided as parameters. 

One use case for this is importing old VS 2003 projects since there is no Addin for VS 2003.  Another is automated testing, so we can feed it project files and verify that we get the correct POMs out.  How is the code for the POM generator tested currently?

Thanks,
