[talk] sent for presentations

OpenBSD has misc/sent which is really simple presentation software.
Doesnt seem to be in pkgsrc or FreeBSD ports/pkgs. (hint hint)

I'm a fan of misc/magicpoint (FBSD, OBSD, pkgsrc) which has a slight
learning-curve for figuring out templates and a style sheet.

Magicpoint is also great in that it outputs to HTML and also to text,
and the language is latex-esque.

sent (git.suckless.org for source or tools.suckless.org/sent) is even
simpler than Magicpoint: you can't customize much at all.  The text is
generated into PNGs with each paragraph being a slide.

sent makes sense if you need to crank out something quickly with little
or no preparation time.
