How are you distributing this information? If you're publishing PDFs, then
you could simply generate a b&w PDF. I'm sure that would be obvious enough
though. If you are going to send out postscript files, then just use a
postscript driver for a b&w laser printer. I've used the driver for the HP
4MV once or twice.

These ideas may not fill your needs, but if they suffice then you could
avoid converting the images separately.
