command-line conversion tools in 0.6.0?

I noticed that the command-line conversion tools aren't around in the current bzr trunk. Is this something that is coming back? Or something that is being changed? I like the ability to run a command sequence of lit2oeb, edit, and oeb2lit to tweak a lit file that is already in the DB, so I'm hoping that this will still be supported.

If the command-line tools are going away, is there going to be an oeb.zip output choice? Then I assume that I could do the conversions from inside calibre (e.g. lit -> oeb.zip, unzip, edit, zip, oeb.zip -> lit).

All the command line functionality is in the ebook-convert tool. It converts from any of the supported input formats to any of the supported output formats. It even downloads news feeds

Thanks. I completely missed that. That's a great way to go.

FYI, I got this error when creating a lit file from an oeb *.opf file:
Code:
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/home/wayne/bin/ebook-convert", line 8, in <module>
    load_entry_point('calibre==0.6.0b1', 'console_scripts', 'ebook-convert')()
  File "/home/wayne/src/calibre/src/calibre/ebooks/conversion/cli.py", line 217, in main
    plumber.run()
  File "/home/wayne/src/calibre/src/calibre/ebooks/conversion/plumber.py", line 685, in run
    self.opts, self.log)
  File "/home/wayne/src/calibre/src/calibre/ebooks/lit/output.py", line 30, in convert
    split = Split(not self.opts.dont_split_on_page_breaks,
AttributeError: 'OptionValues' object has no attribute 'dont_split_on_page_breaks'
For the moment I just commented out the split code, and then it worked fine.
