This document is in the "I should write this down so other people can use it too" category. It works for me which does not mean for one second it should work for you (that's a bit of a disclaimer). If you have anything to add, suggestions how to make this work for different setups then please let me know. Corrections, updates are welcome. I can be mailed at <>
