It would be nice to be able to save an equation, or a library of  
equations, as a stand-alone LaTeXiT document. IIRC LaTeX Equation  
Editor can do this. This would be interesting for applications that  
do not include LinkBack support, or for people who prefer to have a  
libraries of equations, to be used in several possible documents.

It would be nice, too, that in such cases the preamble be saved with  
the equation (and the LaTeX code for the equation, of course).  
Similarly, it would be nice to have the possibility of having several  
different preambles to choose from, as with Equation Service.
