Actually, the idea behind this patch is to mimic the expected LaTeX
behaviour,i.e., treat $..$ as an equivalent
to \begin{equation*}...\end{equation*}.

This was requested at least once before, so I guess it may make sense to
follow the path of least surprise.

Breaking old-documents is obviously a concern, but is the following
construct really common?

Text $math formula$ ...
