also, when collecting and flushing pieces of content, spacing is a tricky business (watch closely to presentations made quick and you'll notice those side effects) 

my approach to presentations is that (normally) they should be rather simple, and the style and (either or not stepwise) approach depends on the content, presentation and audience, which in practice means that i don't use general solutions (apart from the fact that i don't like things looking the same; just as one can recognize a powerpoint presentation, one can recognize a beamer one -) 

so, the only thing that i can do with respect to supporting general puspose step-wise presentations is to provide hooks and configuration options;
