Does anyone care to share a template for implementing MPLS using OSPF for the transport within the PE cloud?

I can find the start of this stuff, but I am not finding where there is documented what the OSPF part looks like.

Deploying ospf for the sake of MPLS is not really different from deploying it in a network without MPLS. If you need to run MPLS TE, you will at least need these two additional commands:

mpls traffic-eng area

mpls traffic-eng router-id

The rest is pretty much the same.
