I understand very well that formula editor does not do algebra. Indeed, if it
*would* do algebra (e.g. by replacing a^2+2ab+b^2 by (a+b)^2 I would judge that
 a bug.

What is the philosophy regarding parentheses in formula editor? I expect that
abs{x}^2 results in |x|^2 and that abs{x^2} results in |x^2|. I have verified
that {abs x}^2 works, though.
