Truing Paired Spoked Rims

Anyone have any info or where I can find out how to true paired spoked rims such as Bontragers, Rolfs, etc. I have trued many a "normal" laced wheel but need guidance on paired spokes.

Logic tells me that the procedure is similar to that for conventional wheels, although the optimal spoke tension is probably somewhat higher with fewer spokes. Logic also tells me that one will never be able to true a reduced-spoke wheel as accurately as a conventional one.
