Well the post was really more intended for the developer who, had an itch to resolve his PDF problem.
But this does raise the opportunity to ask the question about calibre. As calibre continues to grow in popularity more and more are going to want to contribute to calibre. It would be nice if there was a plugin architecture to the tool where individuals could develop their component independently to the tool and have it seamlessly integrate to calibre.
Just a wish list I suppose
