Hello, I think you are speaking about a "alien" for opkg :)
I don't know if exist a package for this.
The problem is not to convert a opkg in deb, is pretty standard. The 
problem is to manage all the dependency.
The better solution is according me to maintain a list, in the wiki, 
with a list of software present only as opkg, and one list of software 
present only as deb, and package all this software..

I think Navit must to be one of the first that need to be packaged, 
because, with Tango Gps, are the only software to use in efficent way 
our FR.
