[racket-dev] Slideshow package needs more splitting

Mm, I believe it's collection-level. Perhaps if play.rkt were split into anim.rkt and play.rkt, where anim.rkt has all the non-gui code, and play.rkt has the gui code. Requiring slideshow/play in my library caused the doc failure.

I think there might be some collection/pkg confusion here. Are you having trouble with a package level dependency or a collection level one? (The latter is the only kind that can lead to the documentation error you're talking about I believe.)

I've been working on a package of different pict transformers/constructors I've made while giving slideshow presentations, with some pain. 
In particular, slideshow-lib pulls in the gui dependency, making documentation impossible. 
I had to just copy the code for slide-pict and fast-start from slideshow/play into my package, which I really hate doing. 
If at all possible, can we split the pict-only parts of slideshow-lib into a different collection, say slideshow-pict-lib or something? Or perhaps just add more to pict-pkgs?
