Hi Myles,

Thanks for your patch.

It always makes me happy when someone is using ox-koma-letter.

Aside: it sounds like what you need is "yourref", maybe "yourmail",
"myref", "customer", and "invoice".  These are typed in the same line as
the date and place.  In my manual it’s described around pp. 180.

On to "location".  From the manual pp. 195 it looks like it is usually
something akin to an address field on the right side of the head.  I think
"location" should be settable via a special :location: heading, probably
with special line breaking rules like the :to:/:from: special headings.
We can allow a #+LOCATION keyword in addition, but need not.  All IMO.
