[XeTeX] xe(la)tex to epub?

Hi all,

just wondering: is there an output driver that will generate an epub 
rather than pdf file from xe(la)tex source? I know it's less precise 
than pdf files in terms of boxing, but epub demand is high, and it 
allows reflowing much more naturally than pdf making it a far more 
suitable format for documents that are released for small screen devices 
(regardless of whether we call them ereaders, tablet pcs, slates, or 
etch-a-sketches). Basically it'd be a good compliment to the standard 
pdf output when generating public documents (parallel format generation 
makes users and customers happy) but I don't think I've seen an output 
driver for this... just custom "latex to .epub converters", which aren't 
really useful. Something that operates on xdv/dvi would be far superior.
