Might be a good feature to be able to take screenshots during firstboot.  Of
course it is possible with some console magic...but thought it would be good to
mimic the anaconda behavior.  In fact...I was hoping it would be as simple as:

from gui import takeScreenShot

and then add an event handler for <shift>prtscrn.

I'm guessing we would want to put these in /tmp.

Thoughts, comments, criticisms?

Implemented in CVS head.  Either pressing <Shift><PrintScr> or passing
in '--autoscreenshot' on the command line will create screenshots in
