Conversion from "open ebook" directory?

ebook-convert allows specifying a name with no extension as the output file to create a directory containing the HTML files that "would normally have been passed to the output plugin".

But how to you convert back from such a directory?

(My underlying problem is that I have some broken .mobi files that I want to edit to fix; I've tried converting them to .epub but can't because they have no breaks in the content and get a SplitError.)

Simply pass the name of the .opf file inside the directory to ebook-convert.
