in your wrapper should help a lot here.

Is inkscape not awesome enough for you? Is your wife not an artist? ;-)

gtk-recordmydesktop just minimizes itself after you click record.
That should work fine on the XO as well; matchbox/other wm will chose
an appropriate window to show.
Ideally, you'd use the same panel-widget for 'stop' as
gtk-recordmydesktop does. The Frame should really be a "real" panel
widget and support the same standard notification area mechanism that
gnome-panel (and friends) do.
