[Gllug] [OT] scripting OpenOffice Impress

Does anyone have any experience of scripting with OpenOffice? We have to
prepare the occasional powerpoint presentation that consists of several
hundred stock images. Up until now, some poor mug has had to insert these
images one after the other and I started wondering if I couldn't automate the
process, essentially: loop through the images in ascending order and create a
new page for each one containing the image. If an image is missing, use a
blank page instead.

Sounds easy enough on the face of it, but google has deserted me today. I
can't seem to find an example of something similar to go on. Does anyone have
any suggestions or resources? Failing that I might just do it in html
although there will be grumbling if it's not in ppt format.
