For long formulas, it may be better to have separate text for TeX and
for the other formats (we already have a macro for that): for long
formulas in TeX, a centered formula is generally preferred, with
@displaymath I assume. The Texinfo manual also mentions $$...$$,
and I'm wondering whether there may be differences like in LaTeX,
