In 2014, Nicolas's reply seems a bit more encouraging. http://thread.gmane.org/gmane.emacs.orgmode/93082/focus=93082 http://thread.gmane.org/gmane.emacs.orgmode/5145/focus=5145 On Wed, Mar 18, 2015 at 04:33:44PM +0000, Eric S Fraga wrote: > There is no specific solution unfortunately.

I'd be interested in knowing a bit more about the "fluid definition".
