I'd definitely love this, primarily if it allowed one to use a
pre-defined POTX template file for export. My division at work has a
new VP who is quite particular about *everyone* using the new
template. I'm going to keep using Beamer, but may be asked directly to
conform. I'd hate to lose all of my Org usage just for the sake of
having to get a PPT for the sake of creating mostly-one-time
presentations at business updates.

I've considered just trying to re-create the template as a Beamer
template, but that can get pretty involved from my previous attempt to
do so.

Also, like Vinh, others ask me, "Say, can you send me that
presentation? I've love to use some of the stuff from it." They intend
to re-use pictures or copy/paste information. It's not uncommon for me
to have to say, "Um. Yeah. The thing is that I use this kind of weird
program. Basically, no, I can't give you anything usable."

For most purposes, Beamer is just fine, but this would be awesome for
those types of situations.

Look forward to what others have to say!
