Just curious, what sort of project has prompted you to go down this path?
I'm experimenting with book typesetting. Since I use LaTeX for all my papers, I decided to use it for doing book stuff. My objective is to create a single set of files that compiles to both PDF and EPUB without any changes -- just type "make pdf" or "make epub" in the project directory and the LaTeX source is compiled to the desired format. For this most part this works. There are a few pieces of functionality missing from Pandoc: centered text, manual pagebreaks, and sensible chapter numbering among others. I think I've managed to cajole the writer of Pandoc to adopt them.

There is another package that does this, but has a more narrow scope: it's tex4ebook. It's much less mature than Pandoc, but appears to have to potential to more fully support LaTeX. See https://github.com/michal-h21/tex4ebook if you're interested.
