Interesting to see fellow OO users here.
And the OO-TeX connection will certainly becoming more interesting as 
we go along.

To be more specific (for those of you not on the OO mailing-list), 
members of the Omni Group are in fact writing a plugin for LaTeX export 
but this plugin isn't ready. One of the developers (James Moore) sent 
the following message to the OO list:
> The LaTeX plugin is in a beta state right now. Unfortunately finishing 
> the plugin is queued behind several other things like getting caught 
> up on support email. I had hoped to have the plugin out by now but 
> there just hasn't been enough time.
> I haven't heard much back from the folks that have been using the 
> plugin. Perhaps it could be released without any additional work with 
> the caveat that it's the initial release and likely has issues. 
> Thoughts?

It seems that Omni felt pressured into releasing OO3 before everything 
surrounding it was ready. At least we have a stable version of the main 
application but those of us who were waiting for those missing features 
are in an awkward position.

As Curtis said, there was an AppleScript for LaTeX export. It does work 
in OO3. I still use it to produce my lesson plans and have been doing 
so since the private beta of OO3.
Haven't tried Adam Lindsay's ConTeXt XML plugin. It seems like an 
interesting route and might make me try using ConTeXt. Once again.

Good luck!
