The attached patch adds support for two new babel header arguments:
=:noweb-prefix= and =:noweb-trans=.

=:noweb-prefix= can be set to =no= to disable the noweb prefix
behaviour, where prefix characters are repeated when expanding a
multiline noweb reference.

=:noweb-trans= can be set to =prin1-to-string= to insert a lisp string
representing the content of the referenced src block.

The goal is to allow one to use, say, a LaTeX src block to represent
some LaTeX snippet to be tangled into a string in some lisp (or other)
code. This isn't possible currently, and one has to manually string
escape the LaTeX code.

As an example, the following two blocks

#+BEGIN_SRC LaTeX :tangle no :noweb-ref nw

#+BEGIN_SRC emacs-lisp :noweb yes :tangle yes :noweb-prefix no 
:noweb-trans prin1-to-string
(setq latex-header <<nw>>)

would tangle to

#+BEGIN_SRC emacs-lisp
(setq latex-header "\\usepackage{…}

I've left undocumented the possibility of setting =:noweb-trans= to
another function. I wonder if anyone can think of some other use.

Subject: [PATCH] ob-core.el: Add `:noweb-prefix`, `:noweb-trans` babel header

* lisp/ob-core.el (org-babel-expand-noweb-references): Add support for
`noweb-prefix' header argument, to not repeat the prefix characters
when expanding a noweb reference. Add support for `noweb-trans' header
argument, to apply a function to the noweb content upon
(org-babel-safe-header-args): Add `noweb-prefix' and `noweb-trans' values.
* doc/org-manual.org: Document `noweb-prefix' and `noweb-trans' babel header
* etc/NEWS: Document `:noweb-prefix' and `:noweb-trans'.
