Is there any built-in command in Mathematica, which converts a vector's 
coordinate system say from Cartesian to Spherical, or Spherical to 
Cylindrical?  By the way, I know about CoordinatesToCartesian[] and 
CoordinatesFromCartesian[] already, and those are for "points" not 
"vectors".  I'd like to know if there an equivalent command for VECTORS. 
Thank you for your help!
