comment What is the advantage of using $f^\prime$ instead of $f'$?
@MaxNoe Double quotes don't work in Matlab. String escaping is done with a double quote. So you'd have to write things like 'The symbol f'' is used to represent the first derivative of a function', which looks wrong at a first glance. All things considered, f^\prime doesn't look so bad.

comment biblatex: Changing key MastersThesis to MPhilThesis

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.
