Half of that equation would be a more generic script.  Attached is what we
use for INN (which has a bunch of INN-specific bits, but also has the
basic framework for things).

The other half would be to set up a way of automatically running that
script on particular files, and that's something I've never done.  I just
write explicit rules.
