[OS X Emacs] Maths within buffers

Frustrated with the lack of performance with OS X's own services and  
the CalcService from Devon Tech that I have been using for ages [0] I  
did a search for something to do maths from within my favourite  
editor. I quickly stumbled on macro-math.el [1], saved it to my ~/ 
Library/Application\ Support/Aquamacs\ Emacs directory, added in the  
keybindings in my Preferences.el file and found just what I was  
looking for. Does exactly as it should including BOMDAS but sadly not  

It struck me that others might find this useful. Perhaps it is  
something that could be added to Aquamacs?
