It's only multi-step because you are importing into the library, then doing a conversion, then exporting from the library. You aren't using the library for its main function - being a library. If all you want is conversion, do it all in one step with the ebook-convert command line tool
. It will let you specify the output filename and reduce three steps (import-convert-export) to one.
