One for the Gmail wishlist

It probably applies to all email clients really, but today I wanted to send my sister a screenshot by email. That involves hitting Alt-PrtScrn, firing up XnView, importing from the clipboard, saving to disk and then attaching to an email message.

What I really want to be able to do is hit Alt-PrtScrn, open Gmail and click "Attach from Clipboard". Gmail will guess the Mime type and offer a link next to the attachment to change it if required. The level of client interaction required to have that much control over the clipboard is probably impossible without some kind of Java/Flash/Silverlight plug-in which I hate. Still, I can wish.
