Convert PDF presentations to PowerPoint PPT

At some conferences, presentations in PDF format (e.g. from a Markdown/Pandoc/Latex toochain) are not accepted. As it seems that everybody has standardized on Powerpoint, I've uploaded a small script that converts slides from PDF to Powerpoint to GitHub. Quite amazing what 30 lines of shell together with Ghostscript and LibreOffice can do.

PS: I tried to produce PPTX files directly. Don't ask.
