Description of problem: Publican should create .mobi files so that users of Kindle devices can utilize Publican-generated goodness.

Calibre can convert from epub to mobi so perhaps we can use this functionality?

I like this idea, but this is something that would need to get added upstream, so I'm moving it there.

MobiPerl would probably be a better solution for us than Calibre: https://dev.mobileread.com/trac/mobiperl

Mobipler link wend dead -- now outlink seems to be:

which in turn has an archive:

and an optimistic statement up a level that a dead URL was at one point live

which seems to have moved into a wiki at:

The supported formats seem to be:

     html2mobi - Convert HTML file to a MobiPocket file.
    opf2mobi - Convert an opf file structure to a MobiPocket file.
    lit2mobi - Convert a lit file to a MobiPocket file.
    mobi2html - Explode a DRM free MobiPocket file.
    mobi2mobi - Manipulate meta data for a MobiPocket file.

There are plenty of tools to convert epubs to mobi, so I don;t think there is any need for publican to have this feature. Anyone using such a tool that has problems consuming publican generated epubs can open a bug and we'll try and make them play happily together.
