I doubt there's any money to be made here.  Lots of people have created
very valuable additions to Mathematica, but they're all being given
away, so far as I can tell.  It's too bad, too.

And here we are, giving away our time.  Sigh...

Recent threads about word processing and typesetting have got me 
dreaming again...

Wouldn't it be nice if someone developed a package that provided a 
function like this:

   DisplayTeX[ " some TeX code " ]

which would cause the kernel to generate PostScript for the typeset 
text, to be displayed by the front end?

I doubt that WRI will ever consider this, but surely there's someone out

there who's both a TeXpert and a Mathematica guru who can do it. No 
doubt there's money to be made.

Probably just a pipe dream...
