I had to write yet another letter, so I digged into this and it's now
working well enough for me. I made a few changes to the file (which I

- fixed bugs to the menu (export to pdf, open pdf), added "export to tex
- put a default address "no address" instead of a blank line, otherwise
  compilation fails
- moved the lco file input before the preamble, so that one can specify
  some additional information (like packages). (This may be
  questionable, don't hesitate to let me know.)

I now have two questions: a technical one and a non-technical one.

The technical one: I see that org-e-koma extends the latex exporter with
some options:

(org-export-define-derived-backend koma-letter e-latex
  ((:closing "CLOSING" nil org-koma-letter-closing)
   (:from-address "FROM_ADDRESS" nil org-koma-letter-from-address newline)

These options have 3 arguments instead of 4 in the definition of options
in org-e-latex:

  :options-alist ((:date "DATE" nil org-e-latex-date-format t)
                  (:latex-class "LATEX_CLASS" nil org-e-latex-default-class t)

Is the missing argument the one that lets EXPORT_OPTIONS specify if some
parts can be omitted for subtree export? Or is it something different?

of concept, but it is working quite well for me, and I'm ready to help
tweaking this. If I do further modifications, should I send them to the
