Hi Aaron,
It's not quite ready for the masses.  When I mentioned it, it was just 
as a "by the way, my upcoming project solves this issue" kind of thing.

I've been working towards a "quick-start" guide for those that just want 
a preview or want to providing testing / feedback and I'm pretty close 
to that point.

The actual procedure will be very easy though.  And quick.
