done.  I grabbed roman.c from
http://downloads.excite.ca/linux/conhtml/preview/8968.html (GPLed) and
removed the standalone console app functions.  It has two functions:

char* to_rom(int, char*)
int from_rom(char*)

from_rom returns -1 when it finds an invalid numeral (assuming the original
author's logic was correct).
