Where in the current documentation is there any math notation /at all/? 
In all my reading of it, I have not run across anything that appeared 
like it was being used. Besides that question, is the full power of 
LaTeX math notation really necessary here? I somehow doubt anything more 
than simple expressions of runtime performance and container behaviors 
are appropriate for any documentation we have.
