You must have used a different TeX than I did.

TeX is a horrible example. The moment you needed to insert anything
that TeX didn't know about, you were screwed.

I think my go-to for TeX was LaTeX, the "epsfig" thing, and then xfig
and eps files (using fig2dev). Christ, I get flashbacks just thinking
about it.

I thought one of the points of Sphinx was to not have to play those games.

I think that graphviz and svg are the reasonable modern formats. Let's
try to avoid bitmaps in today's world, except perhaps as intermediate
generated things for what we can't avoid.
