best route for org-mode --> LyX

If org-mode can produce LaTeX which tex2lyx can import easily then I
would not go the pandoc route. Note-Taking should produce "predictable"
LaTeX so tex2lyx should get this done.

However, if not, pandoc is very configurable especially through the
template. I modified it extensively and still had to massage the
resulting LyX file a little with Perl (younglings will prefer Python
of course :-)-O) especially when creating beamer files.

BTW here is the link I was talking about

There was a pandoc project a while back which aimed at producing LyX
but I could never get that to work so I gave up.
