Basic Usage
-Stash is a simple to use library with powerful features.
-The Stash library conforms to the PSR-0 autoloading standard. If your project
-doesn't already use a PSR-0 compliant autoloader, you can simply include the
-`autoload.php` file at the root of the project to load Stash classes.
-All of Stash's classes live in the Stash namespace.

For project looking to take advantage of the latest features it's also possible
to install directly against the main development line. This is ideal for
testing, but should be limited to non-production code.
