Follow up to this.  Slideshow is indeed a very powerful presentation 
program.  The problem lies in figuring out how to use it.  It appears 
to me that you have to write the slides in XML, then program the actual 
slideshow in Python, since slideshow is apparently a Python module.  
The 'example' slideshow that is installed doesn't really tell me much, 
and the docs installed simply refer you to the sample slideshow.
