recipes and --no-default-epub-cover option

Hi,

If I try something like this on my commandline:

ebook-convert volkskrant.recipe volkskrant.epub --no-default-epub-cover

that does not seem to work: I'm still getting the default calibre cover on my epub document. Nice artwork b.t.w., I just do not need it on my newspaper.

Is there a python code equivalent that I can put inside my recipe to achive what I want?

Which leads me to a future feature request: Would it be possible to design and offer different default covers in Calibre. For example a different default design for E-books and Newspapers, to start with ? Just an idea.

Simply supply a cover in your recipe of you own design, i.e. create a cover, save it somewhere on the filesystem and have the get_cover_url method in your recipe return the full path to it
