[LA.pm] Presenting in your text editor - "Vroom" and "eslide"

Last night I gave my presentation inside of vim.  This is made
possible with Ingy's CPAN module, "Vroom" [0] [1].

Vroom renders plain text files that are then loaded as buffers inside of vim.

An example of my presentation source code is in a tarball [2].  My
little bit of Vroom customization is available in my home git
repository [3].

Randal asked if there is an equivalent for GNU Emacs.  I haven't tried
it, but I think the equivalent is Jonathan Rockway's "eslide" [4] [5].
 You'll notice that an *.esl file looks very similar to a slides.vroom
