This is one of the next things on my TODO list, actually.

For example, take a look at http://www.ltsp.org/ and in

an md-like thing ;)

Any fundamental reasons, or is this in the "fixable"
category? If it is fixable, I'd like to fix it ;)

(but I haven't taken a look at the hairy parts yet,
so I'd like to hear from the people who have tried)

I don't really have the opportunity to write documentation
right now - BIG lack of time ;(...
