See what `main' does in emacs.c with each one of them.  In a nutshell,
syms_of_FOO are called only `if (!initialized)', i.e. in temacs before
it dumps itself.  init_FOO are called both by temacs and by dumped

Anything that needs to be reinitialized whenever a new Emacs session
comes up, should be in init_FOO.
