Just wanted to cite my similar (same?) question from a bit back:
- http://lists.gnu.org/archive/html/emacs-orgmode/2013-03/msg01800.html

The only suggest I got was to use the subfig package, which may
actually be something like what you're looking for.

I guess p{width} /could/ work for what I was going for, but I will
often stagger images and my own "captions" via the org table:

#+ATTR_LATEX: :align p{0.5\textwidth}p{0.5\textwidth}
| [[pathtoimage]] | [[pathtoimage]] |
| /blah blah/  |  /blah blah/  |
|   |   |
| [[pathtoimage]] | [[pathtoimage]] |
| /blah blah/  |  /blah blah/  |
|   |   |

I don't like using p{} because everything is left aligned and I like
to center the images and the "caption" text below each one.
Unfortunately, there's no centered equivalent to p{}. Thus, I end up
using \includegraphics[widt]{} manually.

Anyway, sorry if that's off-topic. Just wanted to voice that I have a
use for this general sort of thing as well. Heck, I think even
applying the beamer columns principle to LaTeX article classes would
work and be quite neat.
