PS/PDF files are difficult to edit. I would like to be able to prepare
materials in Slideshow and allow others who don't use Scheme/Slideshow
to be able to edit them for their own purposes. Export to LaTeX seems
a good approach, though I'm open to suggestions.

Thanks -- I had forgotten about cmd-tab (I'm running Panther), which
is a nice solution to switching, but this does not allow me to
minimize the presentation -- it still forms the background, which
makes desktop work awkward. --PR
