Geotiff terrain data

GeoTIFF is a standard format for terrain data. There are numerous tools for manipulating GeoTIFFs and converting from other formats into GeoTIFF. Currently survex supports hgt and bil for terrain data, but I've been unable to find a free tool to convert from GeoTIFF to either of these formats. It would be great if survex terrain data support were expanded to included GeoTIFF.

GDAL seems to do the job for me, for example:

gdal_translate -of srtmhgt N47E013.tiff N47E013.hgt

GDAL is what we're planning to use to add support for more formats (though via its library API rather than its command line tools).
