That is really, really very nice indeed. You're clearly much more of an
org-mode user than I have, with quite extensive use of it's facilities.
It's the sort of structured commenting that I wanted from lentic in the
first place.

I'm about to add functionality so that lentic should work out of the box
with many forms of script -- I have python, and bash so far, but others
are easy to add. Lentic is nice at the moment, but setting it up for a
given file is too much of a pain; once this is easier I suspect I will
just use it routinely for all my file.

Just looking at your repo, you have "compile-docu.org". I do something
like this - you might find the `lentic-batch-clone-and-save-with-config'
function works for you.
