Hehe, I thought about that use case this morning in the tube. I don't
know yet but have to check if internal links work.

file equivalent to a chapter? Also, would it be possible to split a chapter into various .confluence
files (in the case of a very very big chapter)?

Right, book.txt defines the order of chapters for the case that the
chapter files are not alphabetically ordered. And I think it is
possible to spilt the chapters, AFAIK the H1 header is transformed to
a chapter and H2..H6 headers are transformed to (sub-)sections.
