OK - ignore my comment concerning R - this is working. I am just trying
it out. HTML works perfectly. 

I am just struggling with pdf. I have to set the org-latex-pdf-process
to "pdflatex -shell-escape -interaction nonstopmode -output-directory %o
%f" and, due to security concerns, only want to set it via file local
variable. But I somehow don't manage it.

| # Local Variables:
| # org-latex-pdf-process: "pdflatex -shell-escape -interaction nonstopmode 
-output-directory %o %f"
| # End:

Does not work ("No valid command to process pdf"). How can I set the
command as a file local variable?
