Simple screenshot tool

I was missing a screenshot tool on my xfce zenwalk desktop. Every time i want to took a quick screen shot i have to ran Gimp to do it and what's quite inconvenient. I was just started playing with python and gtk and i found some easy way to take a screen shot with gtk tools, so i decided to make a small app. It's first thing i ever made with python or gtk so don't expect too much. hope you like it

A very nice and useful tool !!!

Great and useful tool. It deserves to be developed more. For example, I'd like to have a shortcut to take the screenshot while the zenshot is working in background. And maybe later we'll see a user defined area to be captured ... :)
