A year ago Flavio de Souza asked a question about latex enumerations
that is similar to a problem I now have.  The answer given then was a
workaround that doesn't apply in my case.

This stems from my project of using a single file to maintain source
for generating my class notes *and* student handouts for my classes.
This allows me to take advantage of the common outline and common
text while specifying text that should go into only one or the other

I manage to do this by something like:

* Common heading

  Some common text

** A common subheading

   More common text

***                                  :handouts:
    Something for handouts only

***                                  :both:
    More common text

***                                  :notes:
    My class notes text

***                                  :both:
    More common text

I have a makefile which creates a temporary .org file by
prepending a specific header on this file for each type of
output (handouts or notes), exporting to a latex file, running
a perl script to remove any (sub)+sections with just the
tags in them, and running pdflatex to generate the output.

So far, so good.

However, I ran into a problem with enumerations.  Sometimes I
have enumerations in my original org file which are separated by
the 'empty' sectioning commands.  This ends the enumeration and
the next enumerated item starts a new one.  The result is a set
of enumerations with a single element in it.  I get something

   1.  Blah

   handout-specific text

   1.  More Blah

etc.  These should really have been 1, 2, etc.

The only workaround I have so far is to make all these items lists
instead of enumerations.  This works OK but they would make much more
sense as enumerations.

Is there anything I can do here?
