50/50 Sourdough and a Conversion Question

Hi all,

Just wanted to introduce myself with a loaf I baked a couple weeks back.  It's naturally leavened 50% whole wheat bread flour and 50% all-purpose.  Learned most of what I know from Tartine No. 3.

My question: Does anyone have tips for converting recipes for bread products (bagels, pizza dough, steamed buns) from yeasted to naturally-leavened?  I haven't really found a great answer for this yet.

Thanks,

Bradley

Here's some writing on that that I think addresses the idea well: http://www.wildyeastblog.com/2010/11/08/going-wild/
