or you could:
scrot -ud 5
the 5 second delay gives you time to click on the window you want to
take a screenshot of.

for that matter you could:
scrot -s
and it's an exact replica of what you suggested, except there's no time
limit. you're done when you're done. you can even just click the title
bar of the window you want.

this is not necessarily about the best way to handle this in the command
line. i think ultimately scrot has proven un-userfriendly to some folks
and thus the need to create a relevant (shutter is not, it's bloatware)
gui tool. when i take screenshots, i often want to do just windows, so
this is important imho, even though i have a perfectly acceptable
solution (for myself personally) as is.
