Re: Bug: invalid example for org-export-define-backend's :menu-entry arg

Upon further testing, the third and fourth elements of the function should instead be wrapped in a single set of parentheses. There should only be three elements in the list.

Ox.el contains the function org-export-define-backend. One of its
keyword arguments is :menu-entry. The examples given include

    '(?l "Export to LaTeX"
         (?p "As PDF file" org-latex-export-to-pdf)
         (?o "As PDF file and open"
             (lambda (a s v b)
               (if a (org-latex-export-to-pdf t s v b)
                  (org-latex-export-to-pdf nil s v b))))))

This is invalid for two reasons:

1. The ?p and ?o elements should be wrapped in an extra layer of
parentheses. For example, the ?p element should be ((?p "As PDF file" org-latex-export-to-pdf)).
2. There is an extra parenthesis at the end of the block.

I cannot submit a patch, as my employer currently will not sign the
copyright assignment. I hope someone else picks this up and fixes it.
