The PDF produced should be more usable as a presentation so should be able to handle some sort of "animations" by producing pages with the intermediate results rather than just the complete slide. Ideally some method of choosing which ones would be included (but I can just use pdftk to eliminate the ones I don't want). This is particular true if you wish to use pictures that build and have components that "exit" because the PDFs at the moment can be unusable.
The only way around this at the moment is to make a separate slide for each action -this degrades performance and is annoying because you cannot group slides in LO.
