              A screensaver for Flickr enthusiasts


    ~ What is it?
    
      Flickrsaver displays photos from Flickr as a screensaver.
      
      It is built on Python and Clutter, and designed for Linux-based
      systems.
    
    ~ What do I need?
      
      Python 2.6+ with argparse
      PyClutter 1.0.2+
      PyGTK 2.12+
      python-flickrapi
      
    ~ How does it work?
      
      Flickrsaver downloads and keeps a pool of photos in ~/.cache/flickrsaver/
      Photos are shown at random, and new photos are downloaded to the pool
      every time one is shown.
    
    ~ Usage
    
      flickrsaver.py [OPTIONS]
      
      Photo sources:
       -u, --user <user_id>     Show photos from user's Photostream
       -g, --group <group_id>   Show photos from group's Photo pool
       -i, --interesting        Show interesting photos
       -s, --search <text>      Show photos matching text
      
      Other options:
