For sure, it'd be better if `\\' wasn't converted at all when exporting to
LaTeX (for the ones in the TITLE and AUTHOR meta-tags, at least).

But how do you insert a backlash in the resulting div/ps/pdf then? My
expectation was that converting \\ into \textbackslash was more common than
inserting linebreaks in title (of which I didn't think in fact...)

As Tim told:

"So, from the perspective of standard LaTeX classes, any instance of \\ in
   the \author{} command should not be converted during export."

I wanted to express that there are certainly more cases where you want the
backslashes in the AUTHOR and TITLE meta-tags to be passed as is, than
converted to their LaTeX equivalent.

But, your question makes sense: what if one really wants a backslash in the
author list or in the title...

Problem stays for the authors as it seems that \newline is not good for the
standard article class...


A workaround is this:

    #+LaTeX_HEADER: \def\dblbackslash{\\}

    \author{Einstein \dblbackslash{} Bose}
