Cool. Nice work, Alex. I'll be giving this a try shortly. Assuming we 
don't hit any major bugs in this, we should add it to the documentation.

As far as documentation goes, too. I'm wondering if we should perhaps 
start keeping it in some format that is a little more portable, too. So 
that we have it easily in text-only and html. Thoughts?
