Roman Numerals


Dear Mathgroup,

  Does Mathematica have any function to convert Arabic
  numerals to Roman, & vice versa? I'm thinking of
  something like

   Roman[2007]  ---> MMVII

   Arabic[MDCCLXIV] ---> 1764

  I just thought about that after seeing the date in  
       the  credits of an old movie, & I reckoned it'd
be faster to use Mathematica than use a convertor on the Web. 

I could not get any info from the Help browser or the archive.
A Yes/No  answer with a few words will do.  I don't
really need a code. Unless someone has plenty of spare
time.  
 

   Thanks.
  Ajit Sen.
