Yeah, ePub was never meant to reproduce highly formatted stuff like 
source code. Also, unless one writes code on his Kindle or iPad, why 
have the book on a Kindle or iPad? You want your eBook where you can 
copy and paste code into your editor, and if you're anything like me, 
that would be on a desktop or notebook computer, and on those, PDF is 
just fine.
