For some reason we missed that one :-( Of course, we also wanted
functionality like selectively hiding slides
(that way you can have lots of slides in a standard slideshow and choose
subsets for a particular presentation).
Still, the Products _are_ quite similar.
We might be able to collaborate, but I suspect the Zope-2 architectural
limitations will make it pretty difficult.
For example, we have three products that are related by inheritance, and
even though _we_ wrote all of them,
it was interesting how much extra work it was to make them extensible in
this way. With the Zope-3 architecture
it would be _much_ easier.

Are you referring to the latest (0.4 IIRC) release? We did our work
before that came out...

Excellent! I think Zope-3 anticipation is building to a fever
