I don't think we want math formulas in Scribus as a Webservice, but your
TeX-as-callable-function approach looks interesting. Do you still recommend
dvichop or could we use dvipng directly?

The technique to produce bitmap formulas from LaTeX is quite standard since
preview.sty came up (see Emacs-preview, LyX, others). Our goals are
* achieve a smooth integration with Scribus
* leave formulas editable
* convert to outlines for PS/PDF export
* allow selection of math fonts from Scribus
