>However, we need to look at some notebook UI/UX options for getting access
to all of the configuration features (might as well), which does present a
bit of a challenge.

That's the key... the UI/UX to make the config available without making the
"configuration" a mess ;-)

slides.reveal.tpl, thanks for the pointer.

Modifying slides_reveal.tpl will let you "config" things in nbconverted
slides... but if you want to modify this in RISE, you need to set up the
config in other way... check this:

Remember that RISE and IPython slides are related but different things:

* RISE is a notebook changed on the fly to render as a reveal.js-based
slideshow... but it is LIVE as the notebook is... because it is a notebook

* IPython slides are just STATIC html/js/css generated by the
IPython.nbconvert machinery using reveal.js as part of the machinery to
render the STATIC slides an a slideshow... but the code can no be run
there. Finally, the slides on nbviewer are just another way to experience
the STATIC slides ;-)

Probably you know that... but I take to opportunity to make the
clarification so people do not confuse one with the other one.
