Hi András,

For pdf export, I have ended up using cmake to do an out-of-source build
[1] so all the files that latex produces go in one, expendable directory
and the original directory (under git management) remains free of
clutter.  It is a little complicated though.  I dream that one day maybe
org will be able to tangle its own CMakeLists.txt on export.
