I'm not sure what that FAQ is telling me.  It seems to me, it talks
about some Perl libraries that use LaTeX.  If that is the case, then I
can understand why that would be more involved.  After all it is
probably accessing more low-level features.

That said, there are cases where it has fewer features/bugs (I listed a
few in my earlier email).

Does that answer your question in anyway?  If you faced any specific
issues, I would be interested to know more.
