I am willing to accept a patch of a sed/awk shell script converting a slide file
to static html (just use <p><pre> and <img> blocks) page or a .tex input file
for a latex document (no beamer presentation, you already have sent for
presenting) to be printed.

The takahashi and monte methods are not meant for sharing in any other way than
the real presentation or a recording of it.
