In reply to lproven: My first reaction was also that the point of LaTeX was being missed if you used a WP rather than a text editor to create it.

But then if you think of the average technophobic computer user (the sort that ROS is ideal for), most are uncomfortable with anything that they can't point a mouse at.

In short we like working with the raw power of LaTeX, others need the volvo-esqe safety of a WP to get their code. Either is valid it's just a matter of preference, the question is, as Martin has already pointed out, is there a market for it. Gratefully that's not my decision.
