Excellent! Can't wait.

That's possibly the worst idea, as PDF is 'strict' 'packaged' format (or how to call it), if you try to convert it to anything (including EPUB, possible, but it will be worse), PDF line breaks will remain.

EBUP is best created (for my simple user purposes on a Windows desktop environment, with the free Calibre - otherwise, cross platform - software) from the following formats:

HTML
MOBI and AZW3 (Amazon Kindle formats)
TXT (though you will lose any formatting, obviously)
RTF
ODT and DCOX
