Why LaTeX's still the coolest tool for typesetting math (mathvault.ca)

I have such a love-hate relationship with latex. It gets the job done and does it well, but there's so much overhead and the syntax is pretty out of date. I wish there was something that bridged the gap between the ease of markdown and full-blown latex. Preferably trans-compiled down to latex so you can still submit to academic publishers. I tried pandoc for a bit, but that didn't cut it for me.

Isn't that the purpose of Rmarkdown?
