This "Panorama Screenshot" patch provides a screenshot method inbetween those, by making a "giant screenshot", but not of the whole map, only of the visible area in the screen. so you can zoom out to make the visible area bigger, but have full zoomed-in detail in the resulting screenshot.
Currently, this replaces the giant screenshot, but ideally it should add another menu entry, a console command and a hotkey (i suggest Ctrl+P). So if anyone knows how to do these, i'd appreciate it.
Update: now with menu entry and hotkey.
2nd Update: console command.
Normal screenshot of a large area: "Panorama" screenshot of the same area:

Never thought about this option, but now I am surprised and lucky, that you brought us this method!
This will be really helpful f.E. in Screenshot-Threads/Stories.
I hope this Patch will leave Prototype Phase and is gettin' stable soon.
I hope it hits trunk soon.
For what it's worth,
I think you are correct for reusing "big" for the panorama screenshot and introducing "giant" for giant screenshots in the console.
