As others have said, very good stuff here. Initial config isn't
entirely straight-forward or obvious if you're running !(Ubuntu || Mac
OS X), but I have it working on Fedora now...

Got a start of an RPM for Fedora together here now too, still need to
gather up an initscript though. I don't see one in the source, but it
looks like there's one in the Ubuntu package... Not sure which is more
work, figuring out how to extract a file from a deb on an rpm system
and converting that for Fedora, or just starting my own initscript
from scratch (well, from another Fedora initscript... :) Anyone care
to just mail me a copy of the Ubuntu one?
