Capture mouse pointer ?

Bug Description


I didn't find any documentation on how to capture mouse pointer with "scrot", so I think this is currently not possible. However several tools can do it, so I think it might not be a difficult addition.

I would love to be able to do that without installing big graphical apps with lots of deps like xfce4-screenshooter or gnome-screenshot.

Indeed, I was trying to report a bug in Inkscape, where the tool selected is incorrect and this can be 'seen' only by the change in the mouse pointer...
