That is how I am using my current calibre2web VBScript based program. I run it on a PC to generate a set of static catalogs which are then hosted (together with the eBooks) under a web server on my NAS box. I can then access those catalogs using Stanza on my iPhone either over my home LAN, or remotely via a 3G network. Currently I have about 2000 books in the library so having good remote navigation around them and on-demand download is extremely convenient.

The python variant I am now working on will be capable of acting as CGI style code, dynamically generating catalog pages on demand, thus avoiding the need to pre-generate the static catalogs which should be much more effecient. It will also provide search capabilities which cannot be done with static catalogs. I still intend to leave in the ability to also generate the static catalogs for those who cannot run python based CGI programs on their NAS box/ Web server.

I was intending the Python variant to provide basically the same catalog structure as the VBScript generated static catalogs provide which was why I am interested in feedback on whether others think the current catalog structure is useful/appropriate
