Default App Request: screenshot (on device, no PC)

Dear dudes who like to write tiny freeware applets for us heathens and mere mortals,

I am fully aware of the screenshot solution that requires a PC (I forget the name, but the author is on Pinstack a lot), but this doesn't help us mac/linux users one bit. I would love to get my grubby hands on an app that works like Antony Pranata's app does on the S60 (Symbian) platform, it's what everyone uses and I miss it: > Screenshot for Symbian OS

Is anyone out there willing to take up the challenge and provide the community with a little bit of codery? My gut instincts say:

- hotkey definable, defaults to something compatible with 8700, 8100 and 71xx series (maybe ALT+MENU?)
- defaults saving a JPG to SDcard if present, but user-selectable save directory
- JPG format with basic option to choose quality (default 80% compression level)
- ability to define filename beginning, defaults to "ss_" or something (so "ss_001.jpg" and onwards up)

...which is basically how Antony's works -- he developed a great UI and set of choices that didn't leave you wanting for anything. It just works.
