Do you have python code to scrape the text from Power Point files?

I would like to be able to scrape the text from Power Point, Keynote
and whatever else a presenter might use for PyCon talks.  I am sure
its a previously solved problem, but it is currently low on my list of
things to even google.

Right now I don't even have a place to store the text, or a firm plan
for a UI to use it.  but at least I am thinking about it.  If someone
hands me one of the pieces, one less thing for me to think about.
