Tool to create Structured catalogs?

I am wondering if there are any tools around that can create a structured set of catalogs from calibre? I want to run the results on my existing web server (i.e. not use the calibre built-in one). The current calibredb command creates a flat structure constiting only of titles (or at least I think that is the only option) which is rather unwieldy as the number of books goes up.

I want to create a structure along the lines of:

Top Level
List of Titles
.. lots of books
Authors
Authors-A
... books for A authors
Authors-B
... books for B authors
etc
Series
SeriesNames
Books in Series
and so on. The idea being that each level is probably a separate catolog file, with the bottom levels finally pointing at real books.

If there is a tool that can already do this sort of thing it would be great, but if not I was thinking of writing one that would process the calibre database and produce the relevant atom style catalogs and book entries.

Any feedback/guidance/ideas would be great
