Thank you for your patches.

It is already possible to override the varible file-wise with:

  #+BIND: org-odt-content-template-file "somefile"

I'm not sure it is worth adding another keyword. OTOH, there's also
ODT_STYLES_FILE and they are quite symmetric, so one could expect to be
able to set both. But then, `org-odt-content-template-file''s docstring
needs to be updated, and the feature should be documented in the manual.

Also, it should be

  (:odt-content-template-file "ODT_CONTENT_TEMPLATE_FILE" nil 
org-odt-content-template-file t)

I think this is a more general issue: should we implement an

  #+OPTIONS: title:nil

feature? I think it makes some sense since we already have date:nil and
author:nil. In any case, keywords are not meant to be used for booleans.
This should be an OPTIONS item.
