Thanks for this David!
BTW my original HOWTO was full of mistakes, so I made a wiki page with
information and instructions: https://trac.torproject.org/projects/tor/wiki/doc/NextGenOnions
If people can try it out and tell me if it works for them, that would be great!
Feel free to improve the wiki if you see something wrong.
