Hmm... I think we have different views of the sorts of users we're
aiming at.  Karl's comments are apt for TeX users, but I was thinking
of LaTeX users, who don't know anything about typesetting, and just
want to get their paper out with as little fuss as possible.  I for
one don't envy trying to explain to A. N. User why \$f(x)\$ spaces
correctly, but \$f\bold{(x)}\$ does not.
