[gutvol-p] Programmatic fetching books from Gutenberg

I made a ebook reader
(here) http://code.google.com/p/bookjar/downloads/list

and i'd like to search and download Gutenberg books. I already have a
searcher prototype using LuceneSail a library that uses Lucene to index rdf
documents and only indexing what i want from the catalog.rdf.zip.

Now i'd like to know how from the url inside the catalog i can fetch the
book itself, and what are the variants for the formats.
A example query result:
 author: Shakespeare, William, 1564-1616
 url: http://www.gutenberg.org/feeds/catalog.rdf#etext1802
 title: King Henry VIII

So, i like to know how from the etext1802 number can i get a working url to
download the book, and how to construct variants for each format.

Thank you in advance.
