  SPECIAL STRINGS
  filename parameters can take format specifiers
  that are expanded by escrotum when encountered.
  There are two types of format specifier. Characters preceded by a '%'
  are interpretted by strftime(2). See man strftime for examples.
  These options may be used to refer to the current date and time.
  The second kind are internal to escrotum  and are prefixed by '$'
  The following specifiers are recognised:
        $w image width
        $h image height
  Example:
        escrotum '%Y-%m-%d_$wx$h_scrotum.png'
        Creates a file called something like 2013-06-17-082335_263x738_escrotum.png
