comment Treating the contents of a TeX-style group ({\blah …}) as macro arguments
@Raphael I don't know of a single significant programming language that can be easily parsed by a regexp, at least without recursive regexps, due to the nested parentheses problem.

comment Treating the contents of a TeX-style group ({\blah …}) as macro arguments
@Raphael This breaks for simple things like \{ in the source, or just {\defun abc \emph{def} ghi} Also, the document is still being edited from time to time, and I can't merge my changes back in, so re-syncing with the master branch would be a pain.

Nice! But what if you want to to align the body of the definition right?

comment Center the second line of an equation
Ah, that is pretty neat; but I'll still wait for other suggestions, I was hoping to learn about something that would also generalize to aligning right :)
