NB: the original patch was wrong and it does not apply cleanly. I sent
an updated patch to the list yesterday.

Plans? What's that?-) Seriously though, I probably won't have the time
to do anything about it for a while, particularly since I'm no expert
in any of the technologies involved, so I would likely need to do
some trial-and-error research which takes far longer than I could afford
right now.

You can customize the variable org-export-latex-classes to do anything
that can be done in the preamble to the document, but I don't know
whether the above can be done there. If it needs to be done after the
\begin{document}, this won't work.  An ugly workaround is to customize
org-export-latex-title-command to be more than just "\\maketitle",
although there might be a less hackish way. A hook could be added to do
that of course, but I tend to agree with you that a localization file
might provide for more flexibility in the long run.
