AFAICT, we never asked Emacs maintainers before adding a feature to Org,
and I don't think the number of export targets in core grew
exponentially lately.

Also, I don't see why Emacs maintainers would want to limit features
provided in an Emacs library, as long as it doesn't impedes GNU goals
and copyright issues are sorted out (which is not yet the case of the
file we're talking about).

Sorry, I cannot understand this argument, since the target is a "tex"
file, and we already export to "tex" files.

I suggested this idea because I thought it was a good one. The very fact
that we're still discussing it proves that it isn't as obvious as
I initially thought. That's fine with me.

I will not insist anymore on this topic.
