[Nautilus-list] Re: [gnome-love] GNOME user environment brainstorming

Just take a snapshot then pop up a window "Screenshot" with a thumbnail and
three buttons: "Save As...", "Copy to Clipboard", and "Print...".

This could be a small program which is run by the default Sawfish keyboard
shortcut <PrintScreen>.

The Windows user would be happy.  The
stare-at-my-printer-and-wait-for-printed-screen user would be happy.  The
power user would (hopefully) be happy.

Who wants to write this 50-100 line program?
