In PCB there's no real difference between a signal plane and a
power/gnd plane.  Just set up any 4-layer board.

I've never had much luck getting the autorouter to do this.  I usually
pre-route all the power/gnd connections because I want them to have
short fat traces, then let the autorouter do the signals.
