Hi Alexander,

The patches from Gavin should already be applied, and Alpgen+PYTHIA is 
supported and should be working properly. However, I don't have any 
personal experience of doing so: hopefully Gavin, who's on this mailing 
list, can help out. I agree that an example (e.g. a page on the AGILe 
wiki) would be very helpful!
