Cloning a Pocket archive in Pinboard

I've saved a huge number of articles using Pocket. I’d love to copy my entire archive (both unread and read links) over to Pinboard, and the most obvious ways to do this seem cumbersome. Do you have a clever way of handling the import and export of the data between the two services?

Thanks for the quick response! To elaborate a little bit more on my concerns about this being “cumbersome”: I have literally thousands of pocketed links, both unread and read. While a straight import to Pinboard will move the content over, I’m unclear that this will keep up a fine distinction between the categories, whether this will handle my old tags (seems like no), or whether this will mark things as “to-read” or not.
