Description

As noted in linked discussion, TeX (amsmath package) defaults to an arbitrary 10-column limit on matrices. There's a way to increase this with eg \setcounter{MaxMatrixCols}{36} but texvc doesn't pass it through to the validated output.

We could either increase the default to something more sensible (if there's no negative effects) or allow it to be set.

Column Prototype
This is a very early prototype of a persistent column. It is not expected to work yet, and leaving it open will activate other new features which will break things. Press "\" (backslash) on your keyboard to close it now.
