Re: [O] Outut file name by backend

I must add that there is one difference between my setup and ox-publish : I use PROPERTIES to 
parametrize my exports in several ways. I create several html pages and pdf files from subtrees. 
These pages need some navigation to be defined and I collect it by scanning the org  file. I assemble the menu for the
pages from this information. I'm not sure I could do that with ox-publish.

It seems that if the pub-dir variable is bound at the time of export, then it is taken into account as
the export dir. However I find it by reading the code. I expect that it is something that could change 
over time.

Possibly yes, I'm not sure.

Actually, I find it easier to write  a couple of elisp functions to
export a bunch of org files as a web site. I handle my courses material
this way. I have web pages (ox-html), slides (ox-reveal) and pdf files
(ox-latex). Sometimes I would like to produce both a pdf file and an
html file from the same org subtree.

When I will have time, I'll take a look at ox-publish again. In the
meantime, I think that it would be more flexible to allow the exported
filename to be computed. OTOH, it is unsafe/unsecure.
