Public bug reported:

Currently the click package index has two fields for screenshots -
screenshot_url and screenshots_url [1]. They are set like:

  "screenshot_url": 
"https://myapps.developer.ubuntu.com/site_media/appmedia/2013/09/xkcd-1.png";,
  "screenshot_urls": [
    "https://myapps.developer.ubuntu.com/site_media/appmedia/2013/09/xkcd-1.png";
  ],

(I'm guessing that screenshot_url is an old field and just
screenshot_urls is what should be used in new code).

It's desirable when rendering these screenshots in a client (e.g. gnome-
software) to know their size in advance. Ideally information like this
would be available:

  "screenshots": [
    { "url": 
"https://myapps.developer.ubuntu.com/site_media/appmedia/2013/09/xkcd-1.png";, 
"width": 800, "height": 1280 }
  ],

This allows us to allocate an appropriate amount of space for each
screenshot then load them asynchronously.
