The Zaurus Squeak already has the ability to capture images from its camera, but it encapsulates the work within some general primitives. It would make sense to use those or a similar structure to work across platforms.
Also, TWAIN might be the way to go (http://www.twain.org/). Not only is the Quickcam VC TWAIN compatable (according to http://www.ctdepot.com/store/cameras/quickcamvc.htm), but so are almost all scanners. And TWAIN seems to be a cross platform standard, at least with Macs and PCs supported (Linux too?).
p.s. Ability to capture images in Squeak would be GREAT! At the Exploritorium in San Francisco I recently saw a number of wonderfully neat interactive image tranformation exhibits. Squeak would be an awsome base for building this sort of thing!
