I'm putting this to the [Docutils-develop] also because it really
belongs there. I think we should continue there.

I wrote the same thing recently and you can find it in the repository

Yes. And this was exactly the reason why I wanted a writer for LaTeX
Beamer. I guess with my writer you will be probably closer to what you
are looking for. Though it is still in the very beginning it can do
nice Beamer slides already.

I'm not one of the Docutils core hackers but it doesn't look right to
me. AFAICS it also has the additional bad effect that the source file
is tied to this writer because other writers don't know this
directive. That is something I tried to prevent.
