Hey all, I use calibre to manage my general fiction and non-fiction library for anything I want to eventually put on my Sony Reader.

I got to thinking that the database functionality of calibre is excellent, along with searching and tagging, and that it would make a great generic ebook manager for books that we might not want to read on an external device.

In my case, I have over a hundred technical books in PDF and CHM format that I would never read on a device because they are complex and would look terrible on a small screen.

I was on the prowl looking for a decent ebook manager and I posted another thread here on MR: http://www.mobileread.com/forums/showthread.php?t=33308

A recommendation was made to create a ticket to allow calibre to import CHM files. I'm wondering what else can be done to make calibre work in a more generic fashion, so as to make it usable as a comprehensive ebook manager.

At the very least, does anyone else have a need to manage CHM files in calibre?
