Could we ship a new key with every copy of GNOME labelled "Take
Screenshot" instead?  :)

You're right, it's labelled "Print Screen" for historical reasons, but
it *would* be nice to have it take a screenshot, I think-- on Windoze,
PrintScreen takes a snap of the whole desktop, and Alt+PrintScreen just
the focused window.  It's useful, but we could do better... e.g. pop up
a dialog offering to Save, Copy to Clipboard, Open in GIMP etc.
