Best PDF Converter for Kindle - Rasterfarian?

Looks like rasterfarian is the best pdf to LRS converter out there. LRS is the format sony ebook uses; since it has the same screen as the kindle I'm thinking we can get this to work on it with some effort.

The project was abandoned due to copyright concerns - the developer packaged commercial sw with rasterfarian but this has since been corrected by a developer at http://kmfstudio.com/rasterfarian_252_patch.html

I'm hoping one of you egg-heads can help resurrect this sw and modify it for the kindle.

See post: http://www.mobileread.com/forums/sho...353#post172353

In order for it to be practical for kindle, I think we need someone with some know-how and interest to do the following:

1. Modify rasterfarian to actually CUT the pages in half rather than use LRF landscape mode. It already performs cuts in quarter page mode so I assume this is possible.

2. Modify rasterfarian to output a reformatted PDF or better, a kindle supported format (PRC/MOBI, AZW).
