Insert menu, Comments.  It adds a sort of sticky note where you can 
enter comments, and there can be multiple sticky notes from multiple 
users on a single sheet.

Okay, I see a few things.
  - A new VBAInfo inside a List up near the top of the output.
  - Extra binary data in a BinaryTagData directly below the VBAInfo, 
which contains the text of my name.
  - Extra binary data in a BinaryTagData inside the slide itself, which 
contains the text of the comment.

The good news is, the comment is beneath the Slide it belongs to 
(although I can't instantly see how to figure out which bits are text.)

The bad news is when I added a second comment and saved that to create a 
third document, I couldn't see the text of that second comment anywhere 
in the diff from the output for a single comment.
