LotR Question

Ok, peeps. I'm having a bit of a dilemma. I've picked up the Lord of the Rings roleplaying game put out by Decipher. Unfortunately, they're using the CODA system for the rules, which I don't much care for. I think that most of the stuff will translate well into the d20 system, but I'd like to get some other opinions on it before I put in the work that would require. So...

Has anyone converted the info into d20? Was it easy/hard? Is it worth the effort? Or should I stick with the CODA system that the book was built around? I don't think that the conversion will be difficult, just time consuming. Thoughts, questions, comments, or concerns? :)

I've not done the conversion. I think it will be tricky. d20 is supposed to be generic but it favours high/comic book magic. Wizards have their spells which balance against Fighter feats. I don't think you can just cut down on the spells (which will still be comic booky) and remove the feats (which are high fantasy) and have a system that still works.

My suggestion is to just use the CODA system (because it's not that bad) or to just use d20 and keep the levels low (less than 5, say).
