[erlang-questions] Pass Name to Dynamic Supervisors

Is there a way to pass a name/ID into the call to supervisor:start_child,
more specifically to init()?  I'd like to specify the name of the worker or
supervisor such that when I ran supervisor:which_children I could identify
what's what.

Also, I've tried [unsuccessfully] to dynamically create a child spec and add
pass that in.  Are there any decent examples out there on how to do this
outside of the man pages?

Thank you.
