Gnome screenshot automatically saves files with at timestamp, making it easy to order your files. I think it would be great if mate-screenshot did the same or something similar.

I'm using Linux Mint 17.2 and this funcitonality was the default for Linux Mint 17.1!
With 17.2 the timestamps are gone and there is no option to enable the timestamps in the filename. Missing it a lot.

@mrosic mate-screenshot never did this so please report this problem to Mint ppl.

@infirit infirit Add a timestamp to screenshot filenames by default
Useful for correct ordering, fixes #115

Also drop the window name as we now have the time-stamp to
distinguish between screen-shots.
