Can Calibre explode a MobiPocket .prc file and then reassemble it?

I was under the impression from forum comments that Calibre could be used to explode a MobiPocket generated .prc file and then reassemble it's html, etc. components into a .prc file; after wanted adjustments. However, when I attempt to "add" the .prc file in Calibre I'm limited to identifying it as an .epub or a .lit file. It's neither. Anyone know of a solution to this constraint, provided this is a legitimate Calibre task to begin with?

Hopefully someone versed in PRC files can weigh in. I have added many non-DRM'd PRC files and converted them to ePub via calibre without a hitch.
