[racket] Embedding a GUI editor into Slideshows

At the moment, I don't think that the slideshow pict objects (the
things that are displayed in the window) can react to mouse/keyboard
events to do what you want. Probably the easiest thing would be to add
something at the slide level that would let you direct the viewer to
put a GUI control somewhere that you supply and then take it away when
the slide changes, and then build on that.

I generally just alt-tab away, tho, since I like to show off drracket :)
