	So - it is clear that the LaTeX syntax is well know; however it is also
clear that we cannot import all of TeX into LibreOffice. Could we make
this a problem of data input, and perhaps do some coercion under the
hood into our MathML-like representation ?

	Anyhow - the math engine lives in starmath/ do have a poke in there,
and see what can be done - even a proof of concept to convert the most
simple LaTeX formulae to starmath form (and back) would be fun to see.
