A wonderful suite of programs called gdal is your friend. :)

The process is pretty much:
1. read StreetView tile
2. add a bit of border from the surrounding tiles
3. reproject using gdalwarp
4. slice into 900913 tiles and save them
5. repeat over entire dataset

It's exactly the same as we've done with the out-of-copyright maps, but 
with the helpful addition that we don't have to faff rectifying them first.
