Wouldn't it be simpler to take the fpdoc approach? Something alternately
generating latex or html? You could cut out half of the latex macro usage
since you would simply expand them when writing the latex code in pascal.

It also isolates us from the latex<->external plugin bond which is
apparantly fragile, since nobody seems to be able with a good converter in
ten years.
