I don't really know where to start answering this. Maybe by explaining that not everyone knows how to use a command line? Or that this command by itself isn't enough to start a recording on most desktop setups (you have to be on Linux, have already installed this program...)? Or that it is much easier to configure further options on a GUI than command line? Or that you are only addressing the "recording" part, while there is much more infrastructure for sharing true videos with the world (e.g. Youtube)? And, does that thing even support sound? And multiple terminals, which is how most people play Angband nowadays? Can you edit the recordings it produces without a degree in reverse engineering?
Nah, I'll just do what you did and go with a smug one-liner that is technically true but ignores most of the issues:

Typing 'recordmydesktop' requires 2 fewer keypresses.
