Not having a clue how Impress etc work but ...

If they use an xml document to store their stuff in a native LO archive, 
then imho my attempted fix for a corrupt Calc document should work the 
same way for correcting a corrupt Impress (or any other LO) document.

It should be possible, for ANY LO document that is stored that way, to 
break out the content.xml, read it back into the original application, 
and recover at least the basic original document.
