One way to deal with this without adding even more complexity to the
core of org-mode could be through the use of "Library of Babel"

The attached org-mode file provides a function for exporting to the
longtable environment with some example usage. If this looks generally useful it (and maybe similar functions) could be added to the library of
babel distributed w/Org-mode.

What do you think? -- Eric

This looks like a great solution to me.

Hi Erik,

I found a very old thread on the list about using the booktabs package to
have nicer tables in latex export.

I found that, making the changes below I can use the booktab package to export tables, and using standard tables only, this seems to work fine.

Can anyone advice on whether this kind of change is meaningful or if this is likely to introduce difficulties elsewhere which I did not experience due to the limited scope of usage? It should be said that I did not at all look
into longtables so far.

While trying to improve this, I think one could extend it so that the table environment can be changed as well, from `tabular' to `array', `tabular*',
`tabularx' or any other.

There was a discussion on this, a while ago, by Francesco Pizzolante. Have a read at: http://www.mail-archive.com/address@hidden/msg18311.html .
