;; non-Org customizations omitted ...
;; some customized agenda commands, probably not widely useful:
 '(org-agenda-custom-commands (quote (("A" "Agenda + NEXT + STARTED" ((agenda 
"" nil) (tags-todo "NEXT" nil) (todo "STARTED" nil)) nil) ("S" "TODO list, skip 
unscheduled and :waiting:" alltodo "" ((org-agenda-skip-function (quote 
(org-agenda-skip-entry-if (quote unscheduled) (quote regexp) ":waiting:"))))) 
("U" "TODO list, skip scheduled and :waiting:" alltodo "" 
((org-agenda-skip-function (quote (org-agenda-skip-entry-if (quote scheduled) 
(quote regexp) ":waiting:"))))))))
 '(org-agenda-log-mode-items (quote (closed state)))
 '(org-agenda-sorting-strategy (quote ((agenda time-up category-up 
priority-down) (todo category-up tag-up) (tags category-keep priority-down) 
(search category-keep))))
 '(org-completion-use-ido t)
 '(org-export-latex-remove-from-headlines (quote (:todo nil :priority t :tags 
 '(org-export-with-LaTeX-fragments t)
 '(org-log-done (quote time))
 '(org-todo-state-tags-triggers (quote (("STARTED" ("NEXT")))))

I also added a new class "myarticle" to org-export-latex-classes that is the
same as "article" without the a4paper option.  I would vote for dropping the
a4paper option from the default class, and let the papersize be handled by the
local TeX customization.
