One way is to come up with a specific scene/login scenario, and take
screenshots of the various clients performing the same action.  Heh, call it
the Hello World screenshot (or Hello Lobby).  (c:  This could even be
extended to show a progressive series of more advanced actions, revealing
how far along each client is, side by side.  Thus, you could see at a glance
that client A can log in and chat (two screenshots), while client B can only
log in (only one screenshot), and client C can log in, chat, and roam around
a field (three screenshots).  As soon as client A supports field roaming, a
third screenshot can be uploaded for that.
