Yes, I like this flexibility.

Ok, it turns out that there were several problems I had...  After some
time in the emacs debugger, it turned out that the default values for
org-jekyll-category and org-jekyll-localize-dir are non-nil... which
was causing the _posts/ directory to be set to a directory that
doesn't exist.  Overriding these to nil fixed the first problem.

The second problem was that my tags and property keys are all in
uppercase, yet org-jekyll only works for lower-case keys.

I seem to be up and running with it for now...  I just need to modify
my setup a bit more to account for the changes... But this definitely
seems a lot less hacky than the happyblogger setup I was playing

I think setting both of those vars to default to nil would make
sense...  As I'd imagine people would probably want to start with a
minimal config/setup and grow into the more advanced multi-lingual
features you have.

Also it would be nice for org-jekyll-export-blog to fail with an
error, rather than just dying silently.  Alternatively even better
might be for it to construct the _post and category directories it
needs if they don't already exist....

Great work though!!!!  I've been waiting for something like this for
years!!!  (Though I'm also a tiny bit dissapointed that you stole my
march; as I was looking forward to learning a bit more Emacs Lisp and
reworking happyblogger into something like this)....  But again,
thanks a bunch this is a valuable addition to the org community!
