org-mode ASCII export of in-word LaTeX symbols support

Hi emacs-devel,

I would like to suggest the following small change to the org-mode
ascii export feature in emacs 23.2. The reason for this is because
org-mode export supports embedded LaTeX in a LaTeX sort of fashion
where a symbol can be placed inside a word provided it is terminated
with '{}'. However in an ascii export the '{}' remains trailing the
converted symbol making it very difficult to seamlessly support these
inlined symbols across multiple export formats.

The manual likewise states:
"If you need such a symbol inside a word, terminate it like this: 

indicating that this form is (or should be) supported. The fix is
quite simple, the regexp for matching LaTeX symbols to be exported
needs to allow for the terminating '{}' if existing. I have included
the necessary patch below.

Thanks alot,
