Old exporter

If you are using org-odt.el, then you can use file local variables.  I
have pushed a fix which makes string values of this variable safe.

    M-x add-file-local-variable RET org-export-odt-preferred-output-format
    RET "pdf" RET


Add the following to your Org file.  Remember to re-visit the file to
activate the newly installed value.

    # Local Variables:
    # org-export-odt-preferred-output-format: "pdf"
    # End:

New exporter

The above local variable trick will fail in case of org-e-odt.el.  When
I get some time I will introduce a per-buffer keyword for this variable.
