Actually, what REALLY would be best would be if the operating systems
themselves cached the drawing instructions for each Window, including
the original text strings with font instructions and vector drawing
primitives, that could be retrieved by the PrintScrn or Alt-PrintScrn
commands directly and pasted into Illustrator or any other application
that "understood" hybrid text/vector/bitmap artwork. Such screen shots
would be much more readily scaled without loss of quality or fuzziness!
