Have you already played with Emacs + AUCTeX + RefTeX? RefTeX is amazing
in what it allows you to do.

In fact, I can't recommend AUCTeX enough for people that use LaTeX. It
is a superb mode that is highly recommended for editing of large LaTeX
documents. Way much better than the stock LaTeX mode provided by Emacs.

And for those that want a little bit more of WYSIWYG, you can also try
to use preview-latex with AUCTeX.

Of course, everything is already packaged in the Debian repository.

I agree 100%.
