If I understand correctly, I'd have to add the latex-math
role to rst/roles.py and the latex-math directive to the 
rst/directives directory and register it in the __init__. However, the
directives defined in Jens' sandbox are writer specific, so I'm a bit lost.  

A little bit of context: 
The SciPy and NumPy folks are looking at the
various documentation systems out there to build the API documentation
and tutorials. Up to now, the combination epydoc+reST seems to most
powerful. However, Latex formulas are a must for those packages and the
raw role is a bit low-level for our needs, hence the interest in
including the latex-math role and directive in the trunk so that epydoc
can run smoothly using it.   

Thanks a lot,
