TU58 dump tool on Linux?

Is there anyone that has already built a tool to dump TU58-tapes on a Linux
machine? I have the drive of course.

There is PUTR. But it is DOS only and is written in assembler so it cannot
be ported easily. The other option is running RT11 on a PDP-11, but then
there is the hassle of getting the dumps off the RT11 file system.

It is probably not too difficult to use relevant parts of the various TU58
Unix implementations out there to do something quickly, but if someone has
already done it, it would be great to not reinvent the wheel.

I have approximately 80  11/730 and 11/750 console and diag tapes that
need reading.
