	I have installed the Linkback plugin.  The modification date of  
Keynote does not appear to have changed (according to the Finder),  
but the installation log for LinkBack shows:

Sep 25 10:34:31 MyMac : Relocatable software from package, Keynote 4  
LinkBack Plugin.pkg:com.wiredflux.keynote.linkback, installed to / 
Applications/iWork '08/Keynote.app

Digging further, I see that files have been placed in:

	That said, I'm still trying to figure out how to implement William  
Adams's suggestion to use AppleScript to change the text color for  
the LaTeXiT equations, or identify some other way to convert either  
the presentation or (preferably) the PDF version into a legible, ink- 
saving grey scale version.  Additional suggestions are welcome.
