Hi N,

Some comments on your great work:

Recent version errors with wrong type argument, but I can't
privacy-wash yet to show the whole stack trace.

  make-string(-1 32)
  (concat aligned-cell (make-string (- col-width ...) 32))
  (format " %s " (concat aligned-cell (make-string ... 32)))
  (let* ((indent-tabs-mode nil) (align ...) (aligned-cell ...))
(format " %s " (concat aligned-cell ...)))
  (let ((col-width ...)) (unless (or org-e-ascii-table-widen-columns
...) (setq cell ...)) (let* (... ... ...) (format " %s " ...)))

For what it's worth.  I might need to give you a full stack trace if
that is not enough.  22 with latest git.

I suspect it is because your exporter actually tries to understand all
syntax, while the old one passes through a lot of things (maybe
including list-like things).

These comments are from an earlier version that worked:

I like to separate things like this:


The old exporter left it intact; the new one tries to interpret it
even though /text/ and *text* are left intact.  I'm guessing this is a
new feature that works only on =word=.  I'd like to turn it off if it
can't be made to not interpret my separator.

Most lines are indented by 2 spaces.  I'd prefer flush to left.

It splits the window even though I have pop-up-windows set to nil.

Block quotes indent by 8 or so.  That's rather nice, but is there an
option to change that to 2 or 4?

Lists are not indented although I always indent them by 2.

Is there an option to set the fill column and refill paragraphs
(roughly like the way HTML does)?  I'd find that highly useful.
Unfilling too.

Feature requesti --export tables using tab characters.  If it doesn't
exist already.  Maybe it does?

Footnotes don't have a header.  HTML export inserts one.

No final newline.

One missing footnote .  It is going to take me a while to narrow it down.
