I managed to get further, but I don't get what I want. A minimal latex
code which has the problem is the following

.. math:: \begin{matrix}x \\ y \end{array}

This shows correctly with latex, but not with html (which shows xy
instead of a column with x in one row and y in the other). I guess this
is a mathml problem ?

Also, I noticed a trivial but confusing error in error messages in
mathml.py. Shall I report those problems with fixes in the numpyref
package at launchpad ? IOW, what is the 'official' gate to this ?

Finally, are are gearing toward math support from sphinx directly
(available in future 0.5), or will we keep our own ?

cheers,

David
