What fantasy? It is routine to carry out long calculations in Mathematica or Maxima
and then produce tex output from that. To edit, edit the original formulae and again
produce tex output.
It is amusing that two decades ago, I was the first in India to be able to procure this
Macsyma software, that too at an exorbitant price, with a machine-specific licence,
on a machine which soon became obsolete, and it is now open source.
