Making it a core feature is nice. But dont think it will be. For ckeditor you can use this:
It comes with MathJax also. Also, download the modified ckeditor from the github link for the editor support. Since this requires a modification to core file, not a plugin, but is quite useful if you need mathjax and code prettify - I also had spent many days trying to fix both.

Thanks for the reply. I tried adding this without luck. I editor will disappear after I replaced ckeditor folder.
I was able to include Q2A Express Editor & works fine. But syntax is highlighted only during editing. Once it is posted, all highlights are gone. Please help
Not sure what the issue is, but if you have a working editor, just go to Admin/Layout - add  the MathJax widget on Question Pages or even all pages. Then it should work.
