Sorry, I hadn't seen your other message and I ignored it...

What you say makes sense. If I'm not mistaken, there is now nothing like
an hypothetical 'org-latex-guess-fontenc', and org defaults to the T1
option. If I remember correctly (because I haven't used pdfLaTeX in
ages), the fontenc option for Greek is LGR. And I imagine there will be
many more cases. If you or anyone wants to implement that on top of my
patch, that's fine with me. I don't have much time to do it right now.
However, my opinion is the following: I think we should focus our
efforts on finding a satisfactory solution for luatex, according to
everything that has been commented in the different sub-threads on the
subject of fonts and fallback fonts. And leave the related to pdfLaTeX
in second place, if in the end LuaTeX is going to be set as the default

In any case, I personally think that org-latex-language-alist, as it is
now in this patch, is sufficient.

Best regards,

Juan Manuel
