 Okay, I can obtain a list of apps running in the background...  like a
task manager.  But now I want to take a screen shot of the app and
what state it's currently in.  Is this possible?

For example, I want to display a screenshot of an email if gmail is
opened in the background and has an email open.  Is this possible?

1. Multiple Extensions / Custom Extensions

I am going to write a mod for the camera and will hook the
onPictureTaken callback so I can add a custom comment to the output
picture. I would like the to happen on every picture that I take, but
realize that if I just open the camera without my program (hit the
camera button without remapping it) then my extension will not be at
work. Same thing if someone else writes an addin that "cuts" the
picture into a "shape" (makes creative photos like stars or whatever)

Is there someway to hook the onPictureTaken callback globally and in a
way like BroadcastReciever (unactive until needed)? I have looked
through the BroadcastReciever, but do not believe an intent is
broadcast for the onPictureTaken callback.

How about extending a custom activity? Say I write an activity and
release it on the Android Maket. Someone thinks it need a little more
to it or whatever. Is there a way for them to extend my activity or do
I have to create a bunch of custom intents so that they may use the
NotificationManager/ BroadcastReciever to "extend" my activity?
