Hi Myles,

Sorry I missed your email for so long.

The thing is, the docstring is not consistent with the code.  It would
make my life easier if the code was changed to match the docstring, but
I would also be okay if the opposite happened.

I am also looking forward to the new exporter being ready, but I guess
this small issue should be fixed in the current exporter until it is.

I have attached the patch that I suggested for the HTML exporter.

Subject: [PATCH] Bring the meaning of body-only in org-export-as-html closer
 to docs

The docstring for org-export-as-html says "When BODY-ONLY is set,
don't produce the file header and footer, simply return the content of
<body>...</body>, without even the body tags themselves."  However, it
currently also inhibits the generation of the table of contents,
regardless if one is asked for by the user in the #+OPTIONS line of
the file.  This patch fixes that (i.e. allows for toc generation if it
is requested).
