Looking for a way to convert MS Powerpoint presentations to video using FFmpeg

Has someone considered (or tried) writing a decoder for MS Powerpoint presentations to be able to render them as video files using FFmpeg?
Ideally, it would render the slides with any embedded images, audio and slide transitions defined in the presentation; if not the actual fancy transitions (which I would think would require complex filters), at least a basic cross-fade using the timings defined in the presentation. Where there are no timings present, a sensible default should be chosen with an option to specify timing on the command line.
I would attempt this myself but what I know of C programming could fit on the back of a postage stamp.
