Epub zipping

I use Textastic regularly, and I’m a big fan.

Lately, I have been working on EPUB files, which need to be zipped in a particular way, with the mimetype file remaining uncompressed. Details are discussed here:

ePub Zip/Unzip AppleScript application for Mac OS X

This complex EPUB zipping currently requires me to use a Mac/PC app or command line to accomplish it. However, if Textastic could build it in as an action that could be performed on a folder like regular zipping, then Textastic could be used as a basic EPUB code editor on an iOS device. That would be great for those who need to edit the code of an EPUB when a Mac/PC is not available. It would also make Textastic even more unique in the App Store!
