    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)

                       passwd   = "/home/me/.vnc/passwd")
