How to mass/bulk convert sub-issues to issues?

I would like to convert a large number (50+) of Sub-Tasks into Tasks. I know you can do that individually, but, obviously, this would be a bit tedious in my case. Unfortunately, the "Bulk Change" option does not allow for this kind of operation.

Is there a possibility to do so at all, if not through the JIRA GUI than through alternative means (Greenhopper, API, CLI, etc.)? I'm using JIRA 5.1.

This widget could not be displayed.

It is usually a bigger operation that one can do via backend APIs or database. That is because there are things to be handled during that conversion.

I guess you are left with doing it one by one.
