I was thinking about a short term perspective where GtkMathView could be
used for the rendering, printing etc where having a good quality is more
important. And the current engine could be kept for the editor until we
migrate to another solution, assuming people could tolerate the low
quality in this situation (they already do). I don't think it would be
too difficult to connect the existing components to enable GtkMathView
but I suspect implementing a new editor would take more time. But in the
long term, I agree that doing something entirely new based on a MathML
representation and on GtkMathView would be best.
