Great, thanks for sharing this patch, I'd very much like to apply this.
Have you seen the instructions for contributing to Org-mode [1]?  Any
patch over 10 lines long requires signed FSF copyright attribution
papers.  Please let me know if you are able to complete the copyright
assignment, once that is done I will apply this patch.

The example below like a nice application, you may also want to use
"begin_src latex" blocks to display equations resulting from maxima code
blocks.
