Thanks everyone for sharing so far. I will be spending some cycles on this aspect shortly. Alan, I look forward to reviewing your updates as a good starting place. Sean, I think that aggregate code will be useful to look over though I suspect I'm already doing that in one of my extensions. When I've got my updated blog swinging, I'll add to both the documentation as well as push up any extensions I write to github.
