Printing in MSO 2013 grayscale: no background

Feature request:
Add an option in printing dialog tab of Impress to suppress all background colors and background images (but not normal images).

This is especially useful for handouts to make the small slides better readable.

Competitor: MS PowerPoint 2013 suppresses the background per default if you select grayscale or black/white in printing dialog.

Sounds resonable

The printer topic is a possible GSoC topic, the groundwork is here: https://pad.documentfoundation.org/p/UX-PrintDialog

Writer has an option to disable printing the background. Depending on how it is implemented the situation might be difficult for Impress/Draw. Pretty sure this issue has been raised several times.
