Re: [Emacs-orgmode] fancier and less fancy export

I plan on continuing to write and support org-publish.el and its
extensions. Because it was designed to be format-agnostic at both
input and output stages (via plugin functions), I think it has a good
chance of working with the XOXO stuff and other extensions people want
to make. Furthermore, it currently publishes all my files, whether
they're e-scripts, elisp code, or .org files. 

>From what I understand, it is not a trivial matter to get Muse
publishing other markup formats than the one it was designed
around. It's something of an overhaul for the next major version, not
a few tweaks. Since muse until recently lacked support for nested
bullet lists (which always drove me nuts) I am not holding my breath
waiting for Muse to fully support Org files, upload attachments, and
format other types of files, the way org-publish does. :-)

Whereas, I think org-publish.el is already a "unified" org-mode
exporting system. I've never had such an easy time authoring an entire
website as when using org.el and org-publish.el, and I can speak from
several years experience with planner, emacswiki, and muse. 

Org-publish.el does not currently support things like LaTeX output,
but I have volunteered to work on it.
