OK - I think I have something basic working, but I still don't know if
what I have done is correct. The example file does provide some clues,
but documentation around this would be really great to have.

F8 and sent upstream to the Gnome folks, who then included it in version
2.24. Unfortunately, there doesn't appear to be anything in the Gnome
documentation library on-line about it, let alone how to use it.

Hopefully someone with a little more knowledge will chime in and
