Need to convert your large Excel file to MediaWiki format?

I had to convert a 300 row Excel file to the MediaWiki format. There are a couple existing converters that exist (see this StackOverflow post), but none of them really suited my needs. So, instead I quickly wrote a python script that does this conversion using the xlrd library. It's nothing fancy (nor is it the prettiest or most robust script), but it does the trick. Hopefully this is useful to someone at some point!
