Perhaps you can: I wrote a little utility to convert CybergraphX-modes to
a grfmodes file, called readcvmonitor.
You can find it on ftp.uni-regensburg.de in the
NetBSD-Amiga/tools directory. It works flawlessly for my Cybervision and
if the CyberGraphX monitor file formats are the same for both cards
it may work for your Picasso, too. But I haven't tried it on
interlace-modes yet. Give it a try:)

P.S.: If it doesn't work, please send me your monitor file, so I could
try to work out a Picasso version.
