Mencoder cannot take a screenshot like MPlayer can with mplayer -vo jpeg -
nosound -frames 1. Should add this feature to Mencoder too since many people
encode a video with Mencoder and then need a thumbnail. Plus it makes sense
since Mencoder encodes to different formats, why not a JPEG image?

Because jpeg is an image format, and mencoder is for movies. It can't even
handle audio-only properly.
-ovc mjpeg -of rawvideo might give you a jpeg image, but I'm not sure about
Unless somebody finds a non-hackish way to implement this in mencoder, this
won't be changed.

mencoder -nosound -mc 0 -noskip -ovc lavc -lavcopts vcodec=mjpeg -of rawvideo -
frames 1 -o test.jpg file.avi
seems to produce a valid JPEG file.
