I hate depending on other people's code. Also, to me this is supposed to be fun
I also don't want to depend on something like Word (which people have to buy first) or OpenOffice (which is a resource hog). Both are made for entirely different things.
I've stated my goal: something like BD for epubs, without the suck and with better features. Further down the line, the goal is to extend it to export most of the other ebook formats.
And who said anything about making a be-all-end-all editor for the publishing industry? When did that come into play? The target audience should be MobileRead members and other ebook enthusiasts. Naturally, the more people who like it and use it, the better.
If anyone wants to create a plugin for some pre-existing editor, great. The more editors we have, the higher the chances one of them won't suck.
