FCoE and vPC

Where can I find design guides  that specifically address Cisco supported FCoE topologies? I have  documents that detail supported configurations of vPC, FEXs and NK5s,  but none that include FCoE. With FCoE, there are special considerations  to be made.....

I  am looking for information about how to connect a Nexus 4000 switch to a  Nexus 5K environment and a Cisco 2000 series FEX to a Nexus 5K in a  FCoE deployment. Specifically looking at the interaction between vPC and  FCoE traffic. I already have a document that describes how to connect a  stand alone server to a Nexus5K access layer in a vPC with FCoE.

FCoE and vPC

I know you can have an end host connected to a vPC domain and run FCoE - and Im sure even then there are limitations...but what about FCoE between a blade switch (IBMs Cisco 4000 or the Cisco 2000 FEX blade that HP now has) and a Nexus vPC domain - is that a supported topology?

I would think this is a hot topic and that Cisco folks would be jumping all over this. :-)
