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 
pitch.... ;-)
