I disagree.  It would give people an excellent foundation that they
can build upon, since they can examine the output from that publishing
routine to learn LaTeX.  When they come across limitations of the
current LaTeX publishing implementation, they will search for
supplemental information.

If it's really needed, why not just add a faq:
Q: how do I generate laTeX from org?
A: use org-export-to-html and then call html2latex on the result (see http://html2latex.sourceforge.net/)



PS.  On the subject of org-publish (sort of), one of the things I like most about org-mode is that I can have Readme.org files scattered over a number of directories and have them all included in the agenda.  However, org-publish assumes all org files for a single project reside in a single directory.  I wonder if I am the only one who has several directories per project?

I have hacked org-publish.el (badly) to allow me to supply a list of org files instead of a directory.  If this would be useful for anyone else, I'm happy to have a go a cleaning it up and offer a patch.
