Indeed - Till Tantau has a gift for documentation (among other
gifts). I'd recommend the documentation for pgf/tikz as well. Amazing.

Two questions (with apologies in advance: I've been buried for a while
now, so I may have missed important details):

o How do I test? Is there a beamer template for org-export-latex-classes
  that implements this spec? I just did a git pull but did not see one.

o I didn't see anything about notes (in the beamer sense: speaker notes
  that don't appear in the slides, but do appear in the handout). For
  me, that is one of the most important aspects of beamer: the slides
  are there to remind me what to say (and hopefully to elicit the same
  memory in the audience, after the talk is finished). They provide the
  structure, but they are just a bunch of bones, a skeleton.  The notes
  are the meat of the presentation, so imho it would behoove Org to
  provide a mechanism for notes from the get-go.
