Just read the thread today. I built a Ruby gem that handles book  
writing process with Textile or Markdown.
You can generate a PDF using the Prince XML which cost 495USD (the  
free version adds a small logo at the first page).

If you're writing a programming book, the code can be highlighted  
using your preferred Textmate theme.

I'm using it to write my RSpec book right now. Footnotes are supported  
and I working on the indexes system and TOC.
The best part is that you can layout your book professionally using CSS.

Check it out: http://github.com/fnando/bookmaker

Don't know if somebody has suggested similar way, 'cause I haven't  
read the whole thread yet!
