How to print just the notes on an Libreoffice Impress presentation

If you are here you found there is no easy way to print just the notes, without any slides, full or thumbnail.

Here is a solution for those with linux available, or perl on windows, possibly cygwin.

This script reads the odp file and outputs simple text:

It requires:
use XML::LibXML::Reader;
use Text::Unidecode;
and unzip.

It also needs: XML::LibXML::PrettyPrint and Data::Dumper
when debugging is turned on.

Since it actually unwinds the ODP format, there is a chance it might now work with version changes,
so please advise me.
