"""Command-line application to push skeleton templates to BlobStore.
Allows easy updating of skeleton templates to BlobStore. Pass in the name of the
file and it will be uploaded. You just need to supply the hostname of the server
to receive the downloads, the app knows the right URIs to upload to. Uploads are
limited to the size that the App Engine Blobstore API, currently 32MB.
The output of the application is a JSON object with the filename of the file
that was uploaded.
