Install:
    1) Install and launch a vncserver. (Hint: Google it.)
    2) $ [sudo] easy_install castro 
    3) There's no step 3!

Test:
    $ python -c "import castro; castro.test()"

Watch:
    Video stored in: <default_temp_dir>/castro-video.swf
    Video player stored in: <default_temp_dir>/castro-video.html
    
    Linux/OSX:
        $ firefox /tmp/castro-video.html

    Windows:
        C:/> firefox.exe ???/castro-video.html     

Use:
    The Happy Path:
        >>> from castro import Castro
        >>> c = Castro()
        >>> c.start()
        >>> # Do something awesome! 
        >>> c.stop()
      
    Host and display:
        (default is localhost:0)
        >>> c = Castro(host='example.com', display=1)

    Storage directory:
        $ export CASTRO_DATA_DIR=/home/me/screencasts 
        $ python
        >>> from castro import Castro
        >>> c = Castro()

    Filename:
        (default is "castro-video.swf")
        >>> c = Castro(filename = "my-cool-screencast.swf")

    VNC password file:
        (default is "~/.vnc/passwd")
        >>> c = Castro(passwd = "/home/me/.vnc/passwd")

    Specify everything:
        $ export CASTRO_DATA_DIR=/home/me/screencasts 
        $ python
        >>> from castro import Castro
        >>> c = Castro(host     = 'example.com',
                       display  = 1,
                       filename = "my-cool-screencast.swf",
                       passwd   = "/home/me/.vnc/passwd")
