How can I set the properties of documents using the bulk importer?

I would like to use the document bulk importer to import a bulk of documents. I have metadata to attach to the documents. How can I get the importer to honor metadata? Is it possible to put a properties-file with the same name of every file in the same directory? What format must the file have?

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Head to the page that describes the bulk importer. Scroll down to the section on metadata, specifically the description of the metadata.properties files, which can be used to set metadata properties on documents being imported. I could only find the 5.5 version of importer document, but I know it works for 5.6 as well.
