CRS/RAC external-procedure handling

We're planning to migrate an existing application which requires an external procedure into a recently-created RAC environment on Solaris 10. At this point we've created a separate IPC-only listener on each node to handle extproc calls, and have validated that it allows us to invoke the procedure successfully.

The next thing we'd like to do is get the extproc listener running as a limited OS user, rather than under the oracle account. Can anyone tell me if this is possible when the listener is managed through CRS? We don't mind writing a few scripts, if necessary, but would prefer not to duplicate the CRS monitoring/restart infrastructure.

My apologies if this is rather basic... I'll happily accept a pointer to the FM to R. :) We're still a bit new to the whole CRS/RAC environment, and it's entirely possible that I simply don't know where to look.
