I've written a manual to describe what you need to do.  I had to do
nearly the same thing with a few modules.  The manual needs some work,
and the more people take a look at it the better it will be.  It is up
on a bugzilla entry, here:


You'll want the attachment at the very bottom, there's HTML buried in
there.  If you have any comments, about grammar, flow of the document,
general wrongness, add them to the bugzilla or e-mail me.
