Use case: I want to easily upload a given directory from a Heroku dyno for inspection/vendoring.
$ dirsnap /app/ Creating snapshot... Uploading snapshot... Done! http://cl.ly/0a191R3K160t1w1P0N25/snapshot-app.tar.gz
$ pip install dirsnap
Be careful! This uploads the given directory to GitHub's gist, anomonously. You won't be able to delete it.
