Hi Nicolas,

Yes, but that would work only for one entry. My main use case is to first filter tree by `org-sparse-tree', then export all filtered contents with `visible-only' option. If I am to use `ancestors' view and move point within each entry one by one to expand, it would be very repetitive. I think this is helpful for generating HTML page or PDF from matching query quickly.
