@T.Verron I agree to that.

Parsing TeX for converting it to something else is, and has always been, a mess. Sure, if all you have is the occasional \emph{} it works, but otherwise it's nearly impossible. I love the idea behind TeX, but I'd really appreciate a newer typesetting language with a less quirky syntax.

Actually I'd say that the one in your fist paragraph is a big disadvantage of Emacs and VIM: their keyboard shortcuts haven't standardized to the same set as the rest of the software ecosystem (ctrl+C, ctrl+V), so you have to retrain your fingers.

@barbarabeeton Now that we have pervasive virtualization technology, LaTeX's backward stability and snapshot are much less of a killer feature. It is easy to keep around an old VM with an old version of Word, and then one gets functionally the same results as snapshot with much less hassle.

comment Equation alignment creating unwanted space
It looks like you are using equation alignment commands to align something that is not an equation. I suggest using a simple tabular and putting $H_0$, $H_1$ inside it.

Awesome, thanks! I'll try to understand your code, the structure looks clear. Yes, indeed I am a mathematician, spotted. :)

comment Creating performance profiles
I did not put an exact description because my question was "is there a package that does them out-of-the-box?". Now I realize that someone probably plans to quickly implement one in an answer, which would be awesome --- I love how everyone in this community really does a lot of work to help people. I'll edit my post adding formulas.
