If we want good PDF output from org-mode, the best way is almost
certainly a good LaTeX exporter.  Producing one would be
time-consuming, but probably not all that hard, since it could start
with a straightforward port of the HTML exporter.  PDF export could
then just run the LaTeX exporter and pdflatex (or whatever other path
to pdf you prefer).  This will require an additional install on
Windows (e.g. MiKTeX), but that honestly shouldn't be a problem for
anyone running Emacs.

I would like to have this feature, and I think I could probably
implement it myself, but unfortunately I know that I don't have time
