I tried it as well, as a one off it seems useful, but after about an hour
and looking at some of the issues on GitHub it is definitely in need of
some TLC. Restarting and reconfiguring is a pickle to say the least. For
example, if you want to access it from other than localhost. I do however
like the simplicity of it out the gate.
