iptables QUEUE target docs?

  1. Is there a good doc on how to use the QUEUE target in iptables. I have
    looked at the docs and source code in the kernel, and one application,
    and I conclude that this shows a lot of what is possible, and how one
    application did it, but no overview doc on the general method.

    I just need an overview of how the original implementation is intended
    to work, perhaps a sentence on
    - how to connect to the queue (queues? comments seem to imply this)
    - how to read a packet into memory "properly"
    - how to tell the kernel accept or reject
    - can the packet really be edited without breaking things?

    I don't need a lot of hand-holding, just a peek into what was intended.
