//        different sizes or positions, the playback will fail.  When
//        recording and playing, you should move the relevant windows
//        to constant sizes and locations.
// TODO(mbelshe) For now this is a singleton.  I believe that this class
//        could be easily modified to:
//             support two simultaneous recorders
//             be playing back events while already recording events.
//        Why?  Imagine if the product had a "record a macro" feature.
//        You might be recording globally, while recording or playing back
//        a macro.  I don't think two playbacks make sense.
