I have a bit of a problem.  We were using Mhonarc to keep an online

Has anyone already written a tool to turn Mhonarc archives back into mbox

Not that I am aware of.

If such a tool does not exist I'll write it myself, but I would rather not
re-invent the wheel.  I've looked on Freshmeat and in the Mhonarc FAQ, but
no joy.

The tool is non-trivial since dealing with attachments is the ugly
part, and there will always be some loss of information (which may
be acceptable in your case).

As a start, look at that is part of the MHonArc distribution
(used by mha-dbrecover).
