Yes.  Until now we have two different ways to go:

1. Leave everything as it is.  This means that invoking tags-search on
   Latex files will not recover the "\bx\b" pattern even if some of the
   files contain the "$x = y*z" string, no matter form where you start
   the search

2. Apply the change I propose.  This means that the search will recover
   the desiderd pattern in the usual case of starting the search from a
   Latex buffer, but will not recover it if you start the search from a
   text buffer

Does anyone have any opinion on the above alternatives, or any
additional alternative to suggest?
