Subject: Re: babel latex headers and image generation commands

I've thought about this more and the solution I presented above isn't
quite sufficient for me. I need something where I get complete control
over what goes in the latex source block on a block-by-block basis. In
other words, I don't want a user-configurable option like
org-format-latex-header plus a list of user-configurable packages in
every block.

I could add an option alongside the option I introduced above that tells
the execute function to only compose the tex file from the body (btw,
this doesn't have to be manual for the user, just define a class and use
snippets), but at some point I wonder how much it makes sense to keep
adding options to this function since it'll just make it harder to
maintain.

What do people think? If there's any interest, I'm more than happy to
put in the extra time and add this functionality to
latex-execute. Otherwise, I'll just advise the function for my own
specific needs.

I do think there's a real use-case here: namely, complete case-by-case
control over the source latex and its output, including export backend
dependent things like colors. But, maybe this is just me and the
existing functionality is fine with people.
