I need to know how to fix tags on links I imported from Delicious into Pinboard.

I decided to switch from Delicious to Pinboard.
On Delicious, many of my saved links had multiple tags. Once I imported the saved links to Pinboard, the tags were separated by underscores rather than commas. This causes the imported links to have a huge number of unique links.
For example, if I had a link in Delicious tagged as amazon,price,important, it imported into Pinboard as amazon_price_important.
Is there a way for me to do a mass find and replace where I replace the underscores with commas? Is there a way to structure my import from Delicious to preserve my current tag structure? Do I just have to go back to Delicious and forget about it all? Any help is much appreciated.
P.S. I saw a link to a Python script, but have no idea how to run Python or do anything with it.
