# [Maxima] texput and extension of the tex function

Hey list,

I am looking for more control over the tex function's output.  I have been
looking at the texput function today and am wondering how much it can do.
For instance, can I use it to make the tex function do similar stuff with my
functions as the tex function does with, say, the integrate function.  When
the tex function sees integrate it decides to output:

\int_<<third argument>>^<<fourth argument>> <<first argument>> d<<second
argument>>,

at least in the 4 argument case.  As far as I can tell, something like this
cannot be done using texput (or set_tex_environment).  Am I wrong or is
there another facility that I am missing?

This would be very useful and cool when using imaxima/imath as I can match
any kind of notation in maxima's output.  It almost makes
emacs+imaxima+latex an ideal environment developing papers.
