Using spectre netlists with Golden Gate?

Internal (Agilent) customer here!. We have Spectre netlists and circuits that we want to simulate in golden Gate.

ggsim <netlist>

gives a bazillion errors. I hacked the correct transient statement by looking at the Cadence ADE output for ggate, so the spectre "tran" statement is replaced. But ggsim is croaking still on "parameters" statements etc, ie it does not read the spectre syntax. I cannot find any docs that provide information on the file input syntax for GoldenGate, or even the command-line options for 'ggsim'.

All the available GoldenGate docs assume we do everything from within Cadence ADE. Well, we don't, and for many good reasons. We run most simulations comand-line and we have all our spectre decks "ready to go" under Cadence spectre. What do we have to do to get these decks running under Golden Gate? Can you point me to any documentation on the changes/edits required? Is this even possible?
