basically same answer I gave last time;  when you want JS to create the
CSS you still have to map the source block identifier to ``readable''
text elsewhere.  You'd just move the static from org-modes basic CSS
into org-mode.

I think the patch is a bonus for those, that don't roll their own CSS
(e.g. Tianxian Xiong, who first gave me the idea).

Any automated solution would be error-prone, too, and depend on:
- what's the Emacs mode for editing (or is there one at all)?
- is there an ob-<language> module for running the code?
- for LaTeX export: is the language supported by
  - the LaTeX listings package (and what is its name there?)?
  - or the pygments library (for those using the LaTeX minted package)?

One example I use for documentation is `conf' source blocks for
`generic' configuration files.  For LaTeX export I have to add 
   (add-to-list 'org-latex-listings-langs '(conf " "))
to my .emacs, as the listings package doesn't support a `configuration'

It's a hack, but it works.  I don't see a general solution (even if
restricted to the CSS header).

I see my patch as a `best effort' for getting things working out of the
box.  Anyone rolling his own CSS will probably pick his 2 to 5
languages and be happy with them.
