You are misinterpreting some things there. It doesn't say that such a
conversion utility can't be written but that you can't simultaneously license
the free BitKeeper version AND at the same time develop a competing version
control system.
Developing a converter is a different thing though and if you have a
commercial license it might also be a different thing. Read the license for
precise terms.
