There are a few more conditions on something's making it into TL (such
as being on CTAN)...

- if by "foil" you mean foiltex, it is not free and not included in TL
- if by "proper" you mean prosper, it is free and is included in TL
- geometry is free and is included in TL but isn't designed
specifically for the use you have in mind though it would let you set
the paper size to something suitable easily

As has already been pointed out, beamer is probably _the_ answer for
LCD slides. It is free and is included in TL.
