Improved handling of literal blocks would be very helpful.
1. Do not put in a quote environment (this uses way too
much space on a slide). I recall some other writers
doing this: it is generally a bad idea imo, but it is
especially bad for a slide writer.
2. The current approach of rst2beamer does not
correctly handle leading space.
Please put in a verbatim environment of some kind.
(The LaTeX writer uses ``verbatim`` but allows
specifying ``lstlisting``, which is what is really
3. It would be really helpful to implement a font-size hint.
.. class: smaller
This is because a line of code won't fit with the default
font-size for beamer slides. (But in fact,
I often wish docutils offered some general mechanism
for supporting relative font sizes, rather than depending on
the user to implement styles for each output type.)
