Updated plugin

Excerpt from the README:

(1) What is all about?

This plugin returns screenshots, continuously.

(2) Does it work? 

For me, yes. I used

gst-launch-0.8 --gst-debug=screenshotsrc:5 screenshotsrc ! ximagesink

and it worked.

(3) Why would someone need such a thing?

I don't know. I was looking for a generic file format conversion tool and
gstreamer seemed to be something like that. I wrote this plugin to become
familiar with gstreamer. My final goal is related to libgnomeprint: Drop
any file on the print preview window and get it added/inserted there.
For this, I need a "* -> GnomePrintMeta" converter. Such a thing will probably
never exist (I doubt that the GnomePrintMeta format will ever be published).
But a "* -> image(s)" converter would be sufficient, too. I could write some
"PostScript/PDF/... <-> Video" converters for gstreamer. A 5 page PostScript
document would the be converted in a 5 frame video and could easily be
handled by libgnomeprint. As a side effect, you could watch movies on your
laser printer :-)
