Yes, indeed in these areas leaves much to be desired...The aim of the
package is to facilitate the writing of mathematical formulas and this
works sufficiently well. The package has a group of followers [0].
I adopt this package when I was an orphan [1], then I discovered already
critical errors [2] (although the package is in Debian since 2008).
With the release of the stable version (Squezee) and the replacement
Open Office to Libre Office, I've just inspected the package in depth.

In these days I've been watching the package more carefully and there
are some issues. The principal is if it's worth packing Libre Office

Ok. Thank you for your time and your sincerity. I think about that I do
with this package.

Best regards!
