How can I create an image file (e.g., jpeg) of just the legend from an MXD?  When I do it by hand, I can select the legend and copy and paste it into another application (e.g., Paint) and save it as an image file using that application.  But I'm not sure how to make that process (or something similar) part of a Python script.
