Thanks for the offer, I sent a message.

There are reams of RFC material out there, and I'm not sure what's relevant
and what isn't. I hope I can find what I'm looking for without spending too

What I really need is some kind of well-organized tutorial I can get through
speedily, but I'm still looking.
