Hi Ceki,

I don't know if my Github pull request reached you on Saturday night, but
basically I have a first draft and it would be great if you can comment:

The maintainer of Jedis created an interface for this client, so once he has
it in his mainline, I'll be able to stub out some tests.
A web-based client is also in the making, modelled after Chainsaw.
