Yeah, it seems reasonable, I suggest going ahead and submit a patch for
that to our gerrit, you can add me on cc on that.

Maybe what we should additionally try to do is to pass an argument to
MediaWindow::grabFrame with the time to use and distinguish between the
case where we're previewing in impress edit mode in which case the
current 3.0 is a reasonable thing, vs the presentation mode where we
definitely want 0.0
