It isn't really a difficult process and it is only 62 lines of code in

I think that's better as a third-party tool though. MathJax and KaTeX
require no changes to the current workflow. You have to be able to build
your documentation using DMD. If someone prefers images, they can run
their .d file through your option, and be responsible for the additional
setup.



Also, a bitmap image format that does not match article text in font size, does not usually have proper baseline alignment for inline math, is not as well anti-aliased as article text, can only be copied and pasted by right-clicking on the PNG and choosing "Information about image" and then selecting the "Associated text" to copy (in Firefox), and does not change color when part of a link.
