DJVU to ePub best results?

What methods have you used to convert DJVU to ePub?

The current method I am using is as follows:
Open DJVU with DjVuLibre DjView 4.4
Export as PDF
Then add PDF to Calibre Library and make ePub(this is basically running pdf2html utility)

Problem is the conversion to PDF step.
4MB DJVU explodes to 35MB PDF!
Then PDF to ePub goes down to 20-25MB, but the results are less than stellar.
Slightly smaller problem is that running pdf2html on a 35MB PDF takes about a half an hour, but I could live with that if the quality was good.

All of this was done on Ubuntu 9.10, but I would be interested in hearing about DJVU to ePub solutions on Windows or Mac as well.
