Supported! I'm definitively in favor of doing a small effort to make it easy for as many as possible to contribute tapes without inventing the wheel themselves. A simple howto covering everything from connecting the cassette deck to a PC, recommendations for sampling software and settings and then tools with concrete examples to "fine tune" the recordings would be great. It should fit right next to the section on tape and disk preservation on the wiki.
I have limited experience with tape conversion myself since more or less my entire software collection was converted to floppies sometime back in the 80s...
