Please include the presenter screen extension in the default install set of!

Why? This is very important for the acceptance of Impress, because very often it
is necessary to bring the own presentation on the flash disk or via email (and
one cannot use the own computer) to conferences or other events. You can ask
whether on the computer used in the conference room is installed.
However, already the question about the program version can be problematic. 
Asking at most venues whether (1st) OpenOffice, (2nd) version 3, and (3rd) the
presenter screen extension is installed, will cause MAJOR problems.

Convincing conference staff to install OpenOffice (if not yet installed) is
difficult enough. Please provide the extension in the default install set!

Thank you for this little step that'll save much stress for many presenters who
travel a lot.

Hopefully, this issue will be considered.

On a conference last week, it was said that OpenOffice 3 is installed on the
conference computer, but they had no clue whether presenter screen is installed
as well. There was no time between the speakers to install anything there.
Hence, I had to live without presenter screen and needed to use 3x4 cards to
write my notes down :-(
