comment What makes TeX so easy to write?
This way, while people can write small customizations easily, big customizations can be changed to switch gears and made more maintainable.

comment What makes TeX so easy to write?
@Khaled Honsy: Thanks for your comment! Actually, this is a fact that intrigues me the most. Macro programming is easy for people. And hence, in part, this might be the reason why TeX is so diverse and big now. However, as we know, macro programming is also a bane, and hence, any solution (if any) that would come later, would have to take care of the fact that the users can still program in the macro code and there can be a mechanism to compile it into a more parsable etc code. I was wondering how possible this will be.

@barbarabeeton thanks. I got this nice document which is really good critique. However, it is an answer to this question.

comment What makes TeX so easy to write?
@morbusg : Yes! I am interested in analyzing either the failures or the success of TeX. If TeX is really one of the best trade-offs, then I would interested in analyzing why. It may not be possible, but it just might be?

comment Subnumber equations within theorem environments but keep them intact otherwise
Thank You. Your application uses patchcmd and then I can patch any environment I want, so it is nice. Also, you might look at the second paragraph of my edit, if you want to understand my motivation for doing so, and if you think there might be a better way to do what I am doing, I would be thankful to know it. Thank you again.

Changed my question to a more general and probably more tractable question.

comment Subnumber equations within theorem environments but keep them intact otherwise
@egreg Hmm. Yup, I am not decided if this is a good idea or not, as of now. I might be able to do with just $57.1$. I wanted to know if it is possible in a nice manner that is, without doing too much of low level programming.

comment Non italic text in theorems, definitions, examples
I know this is a little off-topic but What if I want to use an existing theorem environment and make changes? For example \theoremstyle{break} .

Thank You. This works. I should probably wait sometime before accessing the answer though.

Okay, so tocloft is a package! I read it everywhere and thought it was some another toc method which I did not want to venture into. Let me check and I will get back to you.
