Can't you just edit the autogenerated stuff by hand or define some
of your own latex commands and use sed/awk on the generated
latex? But yes I don't have strong preferences on appearance
or expect to submit to a journal I just want to make sure
the math is right for a limited set of equations.  

Besides the math, there is the input issue. For my code, I was just
entering parsed expression trees in RPN ( or I guess postfix  )
which sounds bad unless you are used to that but it is easy to tack
on a front end if the math is worthwhile :) 
A lot of what I wanted to do is easy to say but hard to type-
say for example a rotation matix- it is just really an axis
and an agle but a lot of typing. I can have my code generate
and muliply those and output latex. 
Eventually if could
probably parse latex and generate RPN , check the math, and then write out
other latex :) When I first thought about this it sounded intractable
and there are a lot of details to code, even if you can find all
the rules and tricks  ( never mind all the integral tables lol ).
