Re: tex mode sub- and super-scripts

[ I'd suggest to move this discussion to <address@hidden>.

  Summary: In Emacs TeX-mode (textmodes/tex-mode.el), there's no
  option to suppress the raise/lowering of superscripts and
  subscripts.  In AUCTeX, we used tex-mode.el's code, but added
  options to turn off this feature.

I'd be willing to port AUCTeX's customization options ([1], code
written by me) to tex-mode.el.  Any objections?  Stefan?

(If it's okay to install this patch, should it go to the Emacs 22
branch?)
