epub version?

I like the somewhat old fashioned simple design. However something which would be nice to have is an epub or mobi Version for ebook readers.

I must admit, that I did not try this yet, but converting the all-in-on-page+printable version using calibre will probably be sufficient.

There is actually preliminary code around to make an epub edition; it needs some work still, but that particular feature should hopefully land sooner rather than later.

And there's Calibre's automatic scraper to turn LWN into an ebook. (See my recent feature request regarding this scraper messing up read-comment state because it has no way to tell LWN that it's just pulling in the articles and discarding the comments.)

Would be much appreciated.
Perhaps you could make these reformated versions subscriber only.
