Impress shows animation preview with the Play button (in the Custom animation"

But when there are multiple objects with several different (complex) effects, it
is difficult to analyze just what is going on.

Like MSPowerpoint, show a time bar for each object. When playing the selected
objects' animation, Impress should show a vertical line running across these
bars, to show the part that is being played in the main screen.

This way, the user can better correlate the scene on the screen with the
composition he has created.

Also allow the user to-
1. Pause and resume the cursor, so that he can freeze the picture and see the
effect in detail.

2. Drag the cursor to and fro with mouse along the time axis, to see the effect
in forward/reverse motion. (This is like operating the shuttle/jog dial on a VCR)
