Please remember that Raspistill is intended as demo software to show how to use the camera- some suggestions, like this one, would be better served by completely new apps. It's not that difficult....
Maybe this is a rather naive proposal : Would it be possible to only invoke raspistill once and keep it running (the same way it keeps running duing a timelapse) and then have it watch a temp file which just contains a number. When that number increases a picture is taken, when the number becomes -1 the process is terminated.
