Easier Whispersync Enabling

Hi,

Attached is a quick app I've knocked up based on the source of mobi2mobi GUI to provide a quicker way of doing this:
http://wiki.mobileread.com/wiki/Kind...-Amazon_eBooks

Needs mobi2mobi, then pick an ebook, enter an ASIN and hit convert to get back a mobi file set up for sideloaded Whispersync.

I'm not sure if anyone feels a need for it? I'm after any useful feedback/faults then I'll clean up the source a bit, finish off and formally release (fully honouring the GPL that the mobi2mobi GUI is under, I'm just not happy with some of my code right now, needs cleaning up before releasing, consider this a teaser...)

Messy or not... if GPL is the goal (or requirement since GPL'd code is being recycled), the source really should be available from the get-go.

Technically, I believe I do not need to release the source with the binary, merely provide it on request (though I should have included a copy of the GPL licence text). Which I am happy to do as I can then have a dialogue with the person requesting it as to the current state and known issues with the state. I just don't want to blindly blast it into the net as a whole in it's current subject to change undocumented state.

Updated/Final Version

I've now cleaned up the source, commented the methods, and refactored some error handling slightly.

So the final version is now available attached to this thread, including full source under the GPL.

Hope this is some use.
