I'm trying to get an account on the wiki so that I can format it, make
some diagrams and post it.  I may throw it on a site I have in the
interim just to not lose it.  Since the accounts seem invite only,
I'll put on a wiki gnome hat and update it with changes from the
mailing list.

I'll also try to add the Catalyst MogilleFS image server app (just a
single file, really) while I do it.

Again, Mark, thank you!!
