Thanks ! If you only complain about missing features, this is because  
you did not find bugs (starting from the principle that the user  
cannot be just happy ;-)

Perhaps I misunderstood, but it seems to me that you can already do  
that.
Copy/paste your latex source code into LaTeXiT, latexize, store the  
result into the library, and name it with the label of your choice.  
Isn't it what you would like to do ?
