Agreed. Can we assume that there'll be a short term update to
..._take_screenshot() to make it do this? Or will it be a new method?
Or will it not be until the next (or next + 1) Maemo Update?

There's no point special-casing this in our own code if the API is
going to change in the next few weeks, and a change in a few months is
of little benefit to the first batch of Fremantle applications :-)
