The One Where He Rents The Apartment

I'm thinking about entering into a friendly agreement over an apartment sublet with someone I trust completely. What sort of (mellow, low-grade, commie-loving) conditions should we have?

I may briefly sublet my apartment to a friend. I've seen advice on here about agreements between strangers, but I don't care about the legal crap. More, I would want to make sure we don't have hard feelings or miscommunications, so I'd be putting a few things in a clear letter. We want the date of sublet to be limitedly open-ended for both parties, and able to be terminated by 30-day-notice from either party (as in, I won't throw him out without a month's warning). Other than that, it's a pretty straight-up friendly arrangement.
What else should I/he ask for? What would *you* care about if you were subletting, from either side? Throughout this process, how would you ensure that things were all a happy-slappy lovefest?
