Hi Nick,

A very big thank you for that crystal clear code commentary.

After the very clear description above, I agree 100%. I will remove my
addition to the manual and instead try to improve the #+ATTR_LaTeX:
documentation based on your code commentary. At the moment I am facing a
very important deadline for the 8th of June, I will submit a revised
patch after that.

Along with the revisions for the manual, I will document my hack on Worg.
