BTW, this is really cool!  With some tests, I'd love to see a PR to
ship this included in our default installation, it's exactly the kind
of  thing that will be useful for authoring more
mathematically-oriented notebooks and hence belongs in core.

Would you be up for adding some tests so we can include it, and make a
PR for it?
