Add feeds and search API to Open Books Library

The library of DRM-free books is really neat. I would love it if there were RSS or Atom feeds available, for the whole library as well as per-genre. Then we could subscribe to the feeds for the genres that interest us and learn of new additions to that category as they happen.

Additionally, although it would probably be more work, I'd love to see a simple search API for the library. On my website I display a wishlist of books I want to buy. If someone is interested in buying a book for me, I would love it if my site could query the Open Books Library and see if a DRM-free version of the book is available from somewhere.

Adding search is on the TODO list, now that calibre 0.8 is fairly stable, I shall probably find some time to work on Open Books soon. A what's new per category is probably also worth adding.

Thanks for the quick response. I look forward to seeing the improvements when you get time to add them.
