No. I also do not know of a converter that inputs DJVU and outputs anything that the Reader can read.

I am sure that there are some out there somewhere because I have a number of images of the Harvard Classics from the University of Toronto in DJVU format and the resultant text extracts from these volumes. Somebody else did the conversions but I do not know what tool they used.

It looks like the iRex iLiad can read djvu files with an add in. There is a thread about it in the iRex forum someplace.

The 2.5.1 RasterFarian annunced version should include a djvu converter...

We are waiting patiently.

Does anyone have some news on the argument?

Kovidgoyal is right, PDFRead does support DJVU, but that's a conversion process that has to be done on the PC (and not a native reader).

What is "djvu"? I thought I was pretty familiar with eBook formats, but that's a new one on me!

It's a format for storing scanned images, very efficient for text content. Pretty thick books can be stored in a few megabytes.

Both pdfread and pdflrf convert djvu to lrf.

Also djvu can be converted to pdf using a standalone app or printing to a virtual pdf printer.

The latest update to Stanza adds djvu support as well as iPad support. The best iDevice e-reader just got even better.
