Re: ePub XSLT out there?

I just wandered if anyone has already gone though the trouble of
creating a basic XSL template to generate the minimum ePub files and

I'm far from an expert in XSLT and creating directory structures,
indexes etc. is something I have not yet done with XSLT, but I'm
sure with Saxon and a bit of fiddling around it should be do-able.
Any insights from anyone who has ventured down this path before will
be helpful. I found something similar in TEI toolsets, but it's
complex and a bit overwhelming. I think a template that creates just
the minimum ePub structure would be well received by a lot of people.
I was going to suggest looking at Calibre : <http://calibre-ebook.com/>,
as I thought it was built on Python+xslt, but looking in the package,
I see only a handful of .xsl files, so I don't believe xslt is driving
most of the conversions. Perhaps they parse everything into an internal
format and then serialize into different output formats ?
