Say that when opening an existing file I want to try first with iso-latin-1
and if this fails try windows-1252.  How does one tell Emacs to do that?  If
I do

(set-coding-system-priority 'windows-1252)
(set-coding-system-priority 'latin-1)

only the latter shows up in the list shown by M-x describe-coding-system.
