Hi Daniel,

Short answer: please add

(org-babel-add-interpreter "org")

Long answer: I think there is room for improvement in org-babel
here. For example, the protective commas are not stripped out on
tangling, but I feel that they should be. And we need to clarify in the
documentation when org-babel-add-interpreter is needed and when adding
to org-babel-tangle-langs is required. I'm adding this to our todo list.

Best wishes,
