I think this is an excellent article, introducing an aspect of org-mode, 
which I think fills a gap that no other software I know of comes even close 
to approach.  I already started mentioning it in conversations and am sure 
it will be very useful to many members of the academic community.

Just to make sure I could answer any follow up questions, I downloaded the 
replication bundle and started installing the dependencies.  I encountered a 
few problems and hope this is the right place to discuss them.  BTW, I am 
working with this on a Mac OS X 10.6 machine.

Most of the dependencies I already had or  installed them from macports.  
One problem I encountered was with installing the RSQLite package.  
Executing the installation command from the README file did not work because 
of permission issues, the command needs to run with superuser rights.  Is it 
possible to give these rights to commands run from babel?  Since I did not 
find a way to do that, I installed from the R commandline, where I found 
that the name of the package is RSQLite, not 'RSQlite' as given in the 
readme file.

The one dependency I could not solve was the 'dot' executable.  I assume 
this is an interpreter for the dot language, for which it seems the program 
on the Mac is named graphviz.  However, I am not sure how to make that work 
with org/babel.  Should I simply symlink to graphviz?  Or is there a babel 
variable to be set?  This is a point that probably needs some explanation, 
at least for Mac users (I realize that the articel might not have been 
intended as such a general introduction with details for all common OSses, 
but it would be nice if this can be gradually supplemented).

One last remark; since this is an online publication, I think using proper 
fontification for the examples and org source code would be even more 
appealing, especially for people who encounter org for the first time.

Keep up the excellent work!!
