Using sage for slideshows/presentations

I was wondering what the current best way is to make a presentation using the sage notebook. Do you just make a normal notebook with white-space separated "slides" and then just scroll through it?

In this thread at sage-notebook, William mentioned that he had implemented a slideshow mode, but it wasn't good enough to include to the main sage branch.

I've heard it said that the linear nature of the notebook makes it difficult to make a slideshow presentation. Mathematica suffers from the same problem, but gets around it by having a SlideShowNavigationBar cell to group a slide together. Also instiki can support slides on top of its normal linear wiki/web page structure. Is there any current work on adding slideshow support to the sage notebook?
