Yes, that causes a lot of trouble.

This would be the best solution from the point of view of py2texi, since
I'm not going to turn it into a real LaTeX parser.

That's no problem.

If an update of py2texi is needed, please let me know and send me the
documentation source URL.  I don't track Python development, so I must
be noted explicitly about any need of action.
