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.

In actual fact I do also have something similar for, say, presentations.
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.

Cheers,

Loris
