I appreciate that, although some form of control of where things are exported to seems to me to be fairly generic functionality and something which might be of interest to a number of people. >> I only have one org file from which I generate a number of graphics as >> well a PDF which contains the graphics.

The .org file and all generated files are in one directory, with some other files such as logos and photographs included from another directory. It was mainly just the idea of being able to add a entire subdirectory to .gitignore which made me think it would be nice to have a way of changing export directory.
