This seems like it might be an elegant way to distribute a piece of
reproducible research. I suspect most readers would prefer to have a pdf
entry point into a compendium over an Org-mode entry point. Instead of
distributing the Org-mode file that is configured to make a pdf file,
carry out calculations, draw figures, etc., one could distribute a
ready-made pdf file with an appendix of Supplementary Material that has
all the code for calculations, figures, etc.

What do you think?

All the best,

Thomas S. Dye
