Same here. I have set up a desktop function that does a screenshot
via import (from image magick); but that doesn't allow me controls
like delays, and it saves to a file which I then have to open in
gimp as a separate step (and remember to delete later). I use it
for quickie "show someone on bugzilla or IRC what I'm seeing" snaps
but not for the important ones.

For what it's worth, every time I see the question "How do I make
a screenshot?" posed on a beginner/intermediate Linux list, the 
answer always ends up being GIMP. It's still the best method
that's not dependent on users running specific versions of
specific desktops.
