== Using mogilefs

   # Create a new instance that will communicate with these trackers:
   hosts = %w[192.168.1.69:6001 192.168.1.70:6001]
   mg = MogileFS::MogileFS.new(:domain => 'test', :hosts => hosts
                               :root => '/mnt/mogilefs')

   # Stores "A bunch of text to store" into 'some_key' with a class  
of 'text'.
   mg.store_content 'some_key', 'text', "A bunch of text to store"

   # Retrieve data from 'some_key'
   data = mg.get_file_data 'some_key'

   # Store the contents of 'image.jpeg' into the key 'my_image' with  
a class of
   # 'image'.
   mg.store_file 'my_image', 'image', 'image.jpeg'

   # Store the contents of 'image.jpeg' into the key 'my_image' with  
a class of
   # 'image' using an open IO.
   File.open 'image.jpeg' do |fp|
     mg.store_file 'my_image', 'image', fp
   end

   # Remove the key 'my_image' and 'some_key'.
   mg.delete 'my_image'
   mg.delete 'some_key'
