Back in 2007 Carl and I developed Slippy a GUADEC to do our cairo slides. I
have used it since for many presentations. It's a pycairo-based tool where
you express slides as Python functions. It's very handy, specially if you
want to use cairo drawing in your slides.
Back in the days, if I had a huge background image, it was replicated in each
slide, so I was getting, like, 240MB PDFs for a simple presentation.
Fortunately that has long been fixed.
Now, for my GLyphy talk , the source images are 14MB , but the generated
PDF  is 18MB. Does anyone feel like taking a look?
