Easy deployment on DreamHost with Phusion Passenger

I don't know if this has been documented anywhere, but last night I had a
surprisingly easy time deploying a Camping 2.0 app to my basic DreamHost
shared hosting account. After fighting with FastCGI for a while, I noticed
that there's an option to point the root of a domain or subdomain at a
"Rails" app's public/ directory and use Phusion Passenger. Once I made such
a directory, and a basic config.ru file to set the gem paths correctly and
run the app, it seemed to work just fine. Granted, the app is dead simple
(one file, no database), so I don't know if this configuration would break
if I changed anything, but I thought it was worth mentioning.
I can add this to the Camping on Shared Hosting wiki page, if nobody knows
of any huge caveats to deploying this way.
