Oh boy!  Is it in cvs or online somewhere yet?  Any tech details?  Using dcop?  
Any developer docs?  How does it account for network apps?  Where will it 
reside in cvs when done?  Does it take into account color and window manager 
theme?  Will kde apps simply have a screenshot directory with a script and 
example files that will generated the screenshots when you install the docs?

Other fun things like
- -Of course the docs screenshots would look the same.
- -Automated screenshots for releases and pre-releases to entice users on the 
- -KOffice screenshots can finally use the same theme!
- -Theme maintainers could generated tons of screenshots with ease.
- -www.kde-apps.org can generate screenshots of applications.

Very much interested,
