html2epub and OPF files

Ok, so Windows XP sucks at the whole unicode via command-line thing, but I've noticed that all the command-line conversion utilities support OPF input. My question is, how strict are the command-line utilities with OPF files (particularly html2epub)?

Say, I have:
Code:
<?xml version="1.0"?>
<package version="2.0" xmlns="http://www.idpf.org/2007/opf">
 <metadata xmlns:opf="http://www.idpf.org/2007/opf">
   <title>Title Goes Here</title> 
   <creator>I.M. D’Author</creator>
 </metadata>
 <manifest>
  <item id="story" href="story.xhtml" media-type="application/xhtml+xml" />
 </manifest>
</package>
Will html2epub fix it, divide story.xhtml into chapter/300KB chunks, create the spine/table of contents, etc?

Yes, it will, though you should use any2epub and you may have to specify the spine in addition

Ok, so if I have:
Code:
<?xml version="1.0"?>
<package version="2.0" xmlns="http://www.idpf.org/2007/opf">
 <metadata xmlns:opf="http://www.idpf.org/2007/opf">
   <title>Title Goes Here</title> 
   <creator>I.M. D’Author</creator>
 </metadata>
 <manifest>
  <item id="story" href="story.xhtml" media-type="application/xhtml+xml" />
 </manifest>
 <spine toc="ncx">
  <itemref idref="story" />
 </spine>
</package>
And I use the following command-line:
Code:
any2epub --level1-toc "//*[@class='chaptertitle']|//*[@class='toctitle']" --chapter "//*[@class='chapter']" --chapter-mark "pagebreak" --use-auto-toc "Title Goes Here.opf"
any2epub will copy the metadata (in this case title and author) from the OPF file, divide story.xhtml into chunks and create its own OPF file containing the new table of contents for the epub file?

Ok. Thanks a bunch! Don't have my laptop with me, otherwise I'd just test.
