Some UX changes to Screenshooter

I'll try and make time for a second run over Liviu's request, and the
proper implementation of the text overlay. For the 1 second delay, can I
then please make a config key to remove the "1 second" min delay on the
spinner, and then use a usleep (min(0.2, delay) * G_USEC_PER_SEC)? This way
I'd get my fast xfce4-screenshooter (and so would other power users) and
the general user base would stay safe. I'm also considering adding a tiny
"Settings" dialog for the filename request so that setting could be exposed
What do you think?
