You are right.  I misunderstood Seb's question.  :-p

I think I looked into this sometime back and I don't think there was a
nice resolution (as evidenced by Seb's links).  That said, I vaguely
recall a discussion on this 1 and half to 2 years back (that would be
the old exporter of course).  I think supporting this as a feature was
bypassed since this is very much LaTeX specific.

Hope this helps,
