i find that a slippery hard saddle is much more comfortable than a soft non-slippery one - are there any products that can make the leather covering (selle italia flite) more slippery? polish and wax are out.

How about ArmorAll? I can't remember if the surface of that saddle is suede or smooth leather, but if it's smooth, ArmorAll might slick it up.
Or how about just slipping a plastic bag over it? It will look lame, but I cover my Brookses with plastic when I ride in the rain, and sometimes I feel like I'm going to slip right off them.

Get a seat cover. It is a thin fabric cover with elastic edges that goes over the seat. I used to use one (for looks, not function) and it does make the seat a bit more slippery.
