RFC: screenshot in packages


On a game project websites, in general the most visited are the screenshot. 
That's IMO because it give a good overview of the game. I know that it's 
sometime biased (e.g: nethack) but in general a screenshot is better that the 
limited description provided in the Debian control file.

I think that tools like synaptic should be able to provided a screenshot of 
the game in the description and it could be cool if the new graphic Debian 
installer was able to show a picture of the application during its 

To do that first packages should provide a screen shot in a place 
like /usr/share/screenshots/. The size and the format must be standard. For 
example a 640x480 8bits picture to avoid a too big file size.

What is your opinon. Maybe a thread about this already exists?
