Actually I'd love support for LaTeX blocks. In HTML they could be
rendered to images or small PDF files displayed inline. That would be
useful for scientific web pages that need complicated
notations/equations, or just LaTeX examples, but I agree, this is more
general than maths support; ideally that should allow for other
external processors, e.g. graphviz
