As I half expected, but synaptic doesn't admit it exists. The listing I see 
here under All goes from "doom-wad-shareware" to "dosemu". Flat out missing 
is dos2unix.

In the meantime I have cobbled up a shell script that does the same as an 
mv but that does the translations via tr.

That is the beauty of linux, there are more ways to skin the cat than the 
cat has lives. :)
