I'm not sure where to submit this but for a long time the 
orgcard_letter.pdf file that has been distributed with orgmode (in doc 
folder) has not been right.

Someone else asked about this previously but there are obviously 
bigger fish to fry since it hasn't been resolved.

Anyway, I looked into the orgcard.tex file and noticed that it 
references a 'letterpaper' which never seemed to get set.  Looks like 
this should have been set in the pdflayout.sty file.  So I added a 
line containing


after line 33 in the pdflayout.sty file (modified copy attached).  
Maybe there should be more to this but this allowed me to use my TeX 
package to generate a working US Letter paper sized version of 
orgcard.pdf by setting \pdflayout=(1l) in the orgcard.tex file.

I thought I'd share and ask whoever maintains pdflayout.sty to 
consider updating it so the orgcard_letter.pdf file may in future be 
as originally intended.

Orgmode is quite useful and I really appreciate everyone who 
contributes.  I may subscribe to the list in the future when I have 
enough time to participate.

Thanks for your attention.  ~David
