Fully Automatic Calibre installer/updater
Growing out of this discussion: Official Calibre PPA?, here are some simple scripts to update calibre on different platforms.
Note: This can also perform the first-time install, since the version check returns the same failure for out-of-date as it does if there is no calibre installed.
Thanks to aleyx for working out the version checking!
