    I let you print TrueType text to your terminal.  The easiest way
    to get started with me is by running::

        jart@compy:~$ python -m fabulous.text --help

    To make things simple, Fabulous comes with my favorite serif,
    non-serif, and monospace fonts:

    - IndUni-H-Bold: Open Source Helvetica Bold clone (sans-serif)

      This is the real deal and not some cheap ripoff like Verdana.
      IndUni-H-Bold is the default because not only does it look
      great, but also renders *perfectly*.  and is also used for the
      Fabulous logo.  Commonly found on stret signs.

      This font is licensed under the GPL.  If you're developing
      proprietary software you might want to ask its author or a
      lawyer if Fabulous' use of IndUni-H would be considered a "GPL

    - cmr10: Computer Modern (serif)

      Donald Knuth wrote 23,000 lines for the sole purpose of
      bestowing this jewel upon the world.  This font is commonly seen
      in scholarly papers.

    - DejaVuSansMono: DejaVu Sans Mono (formerly Bitstream Vera Sans Mono)

      At point size 8, this is my favorite programming/terminal font.

    For other fonts, I'll try my best to figure out where your font
    files are stored.  If I have trouble finding your font, try using
    an absolute path *with* the extension.  You could also try putting
    the font in your ``~/.fonts`` folder and running ``fc-cache -fv

class Text(image.Image):
    """Renders TrueType Text to Terminal

    I'm a sub-class of :class:`fabulous.image.Image`.  My job is
    limited to simply getting things ready.  I do this by:

    - Turning your text into an RGB-Alpha bitmap image using

    - Applying way cool effects (if you choose to enable them)

    For example::

        >>> assert Text("Fabulous", shadow=True, skew=5)

        >>> txt = Text("lorem ipsum", font="IndUni-H-Bold")
        >>> len(str(txt)) > 0
        >>> txt = Text("lorem ipsum", font="cmr10")
        >>> len(str(txt)) > 0
        >>> txt = Text("lorem ipsum", font="DejaVuSansMono")
        >>> len(str(txt)) > 0

    :param text:   The text you want to display as a string.

    :param fsize:  The font size in points.  This obviously end up
                   looking much larger because in fabulous a single
                   character is treated as one horizontal pixel and two
                   vertical pixels.

    :param color:  The color (specified as you would in HTML/CSS) of
                   your text.  For example Red could be specified as
                   follows: ``red``, ``#00F`` or ``#0000FF``.

    :param shadow: If true, render a simple drop-shadow beneath text.
                   The Fabulous logo uses this feature.

    :param skew:   Skew size in pixels.  This applies an affine
                   transform to shift the top-most pixels to the right.
                   The Fabulous logo uses a five pixel skew.

    :param font:   The TrueType font you want.  If this is not an
                   absolute path, Fabulous will search for your font by
                   globbing the specified name in various directories.
