grabbing Wikipedia articles

Hello,
is there a possibility to enter an URL of an Wikipedia-Article (or any Wikimedia-project) and to convert it to epub?

If not, it would be great if anyone was willing to implement it!

Thanks,
moe

/Edit:
Thsi brings be a bit closer to my goal, but having the functionality in Calibre of course would be better:

You can write a Calibre recipe to do this. Check out the Recipe forum. You can save the page from any browser and drop the saved html into Calibre then convert it to do this. You can use any of many different web page scraper tools to grab the article, then drop the html into Calibre ...
