To create the previews XSlideShowController was used
( http://api.libreoffice.org/docs/common/ref/com/sun/star/presentation/XSlideShowController.html )
which is only available when a slideshow is running.

I've just discovered the existence of XSlidePreviewCache though --
 http://api.libreoffice.org/docs/common/ref/com/sun/star/drawing/XSlidePreviewCache.html -- 
maybe that would be useful for getting previews -- also when no slideshow is running (It
looks like this is used for showing the thumbnails which are shown when editing presentations
-- that would also be more efficient than generating them from scratch for the remote)?
