I looked at it when I first created slides for the course two years ago, 
but there were a number of factors that caused me to decide against it. 
I wanted to include mathematics and other LaTeX capabilities, I wanted 
to give presentations using Acrobat to "write" on the slides (I have a 
Bluetooth drawing tablet), and I wanted to have at least an intermediate 
format (LaTeX) with which other instructors were familiar.

So right now I create the slides as s-expressions in a DSL, and use 
WebIt! to create, from a single source, not only the slides but 
instructor notes and condensed handouts for the students. I suspect it 
wouldn't be hard to add a fourth stylesheet for slideshow output, though 
I don't know what I'd do about the embedded mathematics. --PR
