Plugin Configuration:
  `g:CommentFrame_SkipDefaultMappings`   let =1 to not use default keymaps

  `g:CommentFrame_TextWidth`             set global default width of comment
                                         frames and lines; always modifiable
					 using the `...Custom` functions

Basic Usage:

The default keymappings are setup for a custom function to create a CommentFrame
and also a CommentRight line.  All keymapping start with <Leader>, all default
frames and right lines are 80 characters.

    Key     Command Name                Result
    ---     --------------------------  ----------------------------------------
    fcs     CommentFrameSlashes         border: //****************************//
    fcS     CommentFrameSlashStar       border: /******************************/
    fch     CommentFrameHashDash        border: #------------------------------#
    fcH     CommentFrameHashEqual       border: #==============================#
    fcq     CommentFrameQuoteDash       border: "------------------------------"
    fcQ     CommentFrameQuoteTilde      border: "~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~"

    frh     CommentRightHash            line: #~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ title ~~~~~
    frs     CommentRightSlashes         line: //~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ title ~~~~~
    frS     CommentRightSlashStar       line: /*~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ title ~~~~~*/
    frq     CommentRightQuote           line: "~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ title ~~~~~

These defaults can be unmapped, remapped or preserved, as you see fit or can be
not mapped at all using the config variable mentioned above.

New styles and keymappings can be added using the following lines in your vimrc: 
    command! -nargs=+ CommentFrameSlashMeDown :call CommentFrame#Custom('//', '//', 80, '*', '_', 0, <args>)
    call CommentFrame#MapKeys('ni', 'cfs', ':CommentFrameSlashMeDown ""<Left>')
This will create a new command and a new key mapped in modes normal (n) and
insert (i) modes, as designeted in the first MapKeys arg, then 'cfC' as the keys
to map, and the command to be run with that keypress, or by using the command
from the ':' command line.

Below is the MapKeys call for direct access to the CommentFrameCustom 
command, if only a keymapping is desired, not another usable command.
    call CommentFrame#MapKeys("n", "mykeys", ":CommentFrameCustom '!','...',80,':','>',3,''<Left>")

Have fun stormin the castle!
