That's exactly how gbm did it.

I think it was probably still cheaper buying them individually when you used some of the bigger Fictionwise coupons.

The format changed a few months ago on FW, and the same new format is being used by B&N (presumably it is the supplier who changed the formatting). Now the formatting is more "primitive" - less css, no paragraph indents, limited use of style classes and no evidence of Calibre. I always do my own styling anyway, so I can use my existing styling that I have been using when I got the mag from FW.
At least with the most recent Analog, the Fictionwise version and the Nook version are identical other than a couple of changes in the OPF file and the fact that the Nook epub is uncompressed.
