Well, It feels like an answered prayer, anyway. About a month ago, I submitted a suggestion to Google about videos in presentations. They had been using a custom widget to embed YouTube videos, but that didn't have the normal YouTube controls, didn't pause/resume correctly, and most importantly, didn't have the ability to pre-cache the video.
Sometime in the last week or so they switched to a straight YouTube widget. Much simpler. I know they probably got 8,000 suggestions and didn't respond to mine in particular, but it feels that way.
