Want to add a vent fitting to a polyethylene tank

Hello all.
What are my options for adding a fitting to a polyethylene tank?
Are compression fittings my only reasonable solution?
Anyone have a good resource for purchasing tank fittings?

Thanks!

One of our members added some fittings to his poly tank.

Wow... That's some good thinking.. I have a router and am willing to give it a shot.
With that info in hand, I was able to find an ok price at http://www.pellandent.com/default.aspx for the fittings. I ordered 3 1/2" fittings just in case I screw up
