I would love to as well, but arrows are not immediately available in
Inkscape, you have to draw them manually. And since my designer skills
are very, very limited, I gave up on this.

Ok. I will see how many topics I believe should be mentioned. But I
don't think we need to limit those too much: people don't necessarily
need to watch the entire slide set. As long as they get some of the
information, that's good enough.
