We found it convenient to write a URIResolver that pulls content out of 
zip files; that way we can process all the epub pieces in place without 
the need for temporary files.  It didn't present great difficulties, 
although I may be missing something - we handled the spine and the rest, 
but don't have a CSS parser - that sounds neat! But some ability to 
enumerate the contents of the zip, (or to pull out the contents of a 
"folder" from the zip - a kind of artificial construct) is a big help.
