There is a SdUnoSlideView::getSelection implementation that puts all 
selected slides as XDrawPage reference in a
sequence so chances are good it does what you are looking for.
The open question is how to get the correct XSelectionSupplier to call 
getSelection on. I would hope that it is
the obvious one, xModel->getCurrentController(). But Andrés view 
hierarchy may be more complex than that.
But it also depends if you only need this if you are actual in the slide 
sorter view. If you need this from the slide panel
than this may be more complicate. Feel free to ask about that specific 
if you can't figure that out for yourself.
