 I do like the idea of using an auto-generated screenshot of demo content,
 but I think it should wait until there's multiple screenshot support
 That would allow for both "This is what you should expect out of the box"
 and "This is what's possible" screenshots.

 I don't think an auto-generated screenshot would be the best option for
 many themes at present, so it would really have to require far better
 theme demo's first (Whether better demo content fixes that, is yet to be

 For reference though, we can auto-generate screenshots using the
 WordPress.com mShots service as we do on the WordPress.org/showcase -

 I'm bumping the priority of this down based on the above thoughts and
 others comments
