That's a great methodology. Unfortunately, it'd be really hard to code.
Like, which series goes first? How do I even detect that one is a subseries of the other?

Wikidata does not readily provide information to detect and make decisions on these things. Right now, pretty much a single query gets all the data for all the books. I'm not too keen on doing a second query for each book alternative unless I have to or unless it finds there is only a single book in the results.

I have preliminary series working. If wikidata doesn't have a series index, I set it to 0. If it is in two series, both are returned (and visible in the log) but calibre merges them, only keeping one set of series data, which presumably is somewhat random.

I'm open to suggestions on adjustments to this behavior; otherwise let me know if you'd like me to release it immediately, or wait for a few more features.
