    Is it possible to somehow overlay a div per slide that would display the slide title, or caption, or description, etc.?

    I managed to create titles and captions just by styling a blockquote for the slides. You'll have to give it absolute positioning and set the top according to the size of your slider. Then just add the blockquote under the image in the editor window. Here's an example of the CSS -

    div.anythingSlider .anythingWindow blockquote {
    width:613px;
    height:45px;
    position: absolute;
    top:270px;
    color:#FFF;
    padding:10px;
    font-family: "HelveticaNeue-Light", "Helvetica Neue Light", "Helvetica Neue", Helvetica, Arial, "Lucida Grande", sans-serif;
    background:url(../images/slider-caption-bg.png);}

    And here's the site - http://www.rocksolidpd.com/

    Another example here - http://athensfloors.seoteric.com/

    Hope this helps.

    Oh, and the reason I used a blockquote was so the client could add their own titles without having to edit in the html view.
