Hmm, that is a drawback, hadn't really thought it through that far
before I posted my last message :)  I guess the simplest option would be
to have separate Desktop Screenshot and Window Screenshot menu items if
we thought it was important to offer both up-front.  Or as other people
have said, just do it the GIMP way and pop up a dialog first offering
window/region snapshot modes, but with the desktop screenshot already
taken in case that's just what the user wanted.

The docs guys would have something to say about that I suspect :)
