Interesting.  Are any sample files available?

I'm not aware of any such list.  It seems pretty common to build web-based
OpenSlide viewers using OpenSeadragon or a JavaScript map viewer.  OpenSlide
Python includes library code and an example HTTP server for generating Deep
Zoom tiles on-demand, and OpenSlide Java includes a simple desktop viewer
