I don't think you can do this via org. Whenever I have tables of any
complexity, I end up doing them manually with tabular inside a
#+begin_latex section. If you find a solution, I'd love to hear it!
Perhaps there's a quicker way of using org-table placeholders and then
doing some quick tweak to the .tex file generated rather than me doing
the whole thing in LaTeX.


Good luck,
John
