POLYFLOW - can POLYDATA convert an ICEM-mesh file that contains pyramid elements?

When trying to convert an ICEM file that contains pyramids, the program issues a warning:

Unsupported element type
In 1-D, we recognize bars.
In 2-D, we recognize quads and triangles.
In 3-D, we recognize bricks, wedges and tetra.
Hence, pyramids do not seem to be supported at the conversion.
What can be done?
The truoble can be circumvented by reading the ICEM mesh file in GAMBIT and subsequently by saving a GAMBIT neutral file to be convert afterwards.
