This can work where the internal file format is the same, but the 
software doesn't recognize the camera name/model in the header. As far 
as I know that only works with software that already understands the 
particular RAW format.

You idea would only work if Oly and Panny happened to share a file 
format. While that would make perfect sense from our perspective, a 
cross maker 4/3 RAW format, I think it is highly unlikely.

Otherwise, as Chuck says, the work of creating an app to convert one RAW 
format to another seems a bit quixotic. Should anyone wish to do so, the 
needed internal format info and much code would be found in Dave 
Coffin's dcraw, the source for which is largely in the public domain.
