Re: [AUCTeX] Replace \[ ... \] with \begin{equation} ... \end{equation}

I am wondering if there is a fast way to replace \[ ... \] with \begin{equation} ... \end{equation}. From looking at the code of LaTeX-modify-environment, it seems that it is hard-coded to look for "begin" and "end"...

What's the use case here?  Changing the current environment while you
are editing (in) it or changing several environments across a file?  For
the first there is no support in `LaTeX-modify-environment' (yet) and
the second would be a case for search and replace.

I was thinking about the first point. I usually use display equations without tags, but every now and then, after writing some equation using \[ ... \], I realize that I need to refer to it later. At that point I would like to move the point to that equation and change it to \begin{equation} ... \end{equation}.

\[...\] could be supported better in AUCTeX.  If we take a look at
modification we should probably also take a look at insertion.

OK, that's just some suggestion for the future...
