>From the beamer manual, in the section "Structuring a Frame", there is
an example of vertically aligning columns.  This is done by adding the
option [t] to the \begin{columns} directive.

By the way, I think the default behaviour is affected by the theme you
choose but I'm not entirely sure whether this is true or how...

In any case, I do not know how to get this option passed through from
org.  You can specify options (with BEAMER_opt property) for individual
elements such as frames and individual columns but I haven't seen a
directive that would allow one to specify an option for an implicitly
generated LaTeX directive such as a columns environment.  Maybe Nicolas
can jump in here...?

Secondly, I find that [t] doesn't always work as nicely as it should so
I often end up putting \vspace*{} directives directly in the org and
sometimes \vfill.
