This works too, but Lawrence's patch makes it much easier and
probably works for other export formats too. Thanks a lot. :)

No doubt Lawrence's patch can be extended to work for other exports, but it's not there yet: each exporter would need a change similar to the one
that he made to the LaTeX exporter.

Let's handle this change exporter by exporter. The longest trip starts
with the first step :)

Sorry, I sent my previous comment without reading ahead for this. I still
would like to see some discussion on this, though.


Aloha Nick,

A non-programmer user's perspective.

I'm pleased that the goal of having one source file export well to various formats is widely held. I'm also pleased that "exports well" is frequently redefined to a higher standard. It is impressive to watch something as complex as Org-mode created in this way.

I agree with you that it would be more convenient for users if features were introduced fully formed. I guess users get something like that by sticking to releases, rather than following along on git. It used to perturb me that Org-mode files that I had worked hard to create would suddenly break, especially when these were intended to replace LaTeX files, which are rarely if ever broken in that stable environment. I weighed that inconvenience against the good things that Org-mode has brought me and decided to live with the occasional inconvenience/catastrophe.

All the best,
