I took Kovid's response to mean that he, himself, is not interested in working on a solution that involves third-party, proprietary binaries. And will not exert any effort on that front. Nor will something like that be included in calibre's official distribution. I get that. That's not what calibre is about.
That certainly doesn't stop someone from writing a third-party plugin that allows the user to supply the location of their local copy of kindlegen to build KF8's from ebooks in their calibre library... if only until an official calibre solution exists.
There need be no dissension here.
