[Bug-AUCTeX] tex-5.502; TeX-command-list - renaming menu entries

I've configured my TeX-command-list to show me a nicely structured menu, and while doing so I've renamed menu entries. For example, I have renamed "View" to "View PS", and "LaTeX" to "Compile with LaTeX".

The issue occurs when I then do C-c C-c and accept the default command. If it is "LaTeX" or "View", it'll fail with a "wrong type argument" error. (Originally reported by Robert Sloan on the Emacs / Aquamacs-bugs mailing lists.)

The reason for the given behavior is that you do a string-match over the command list, and you try to match a hard-coded string such as "View" with the menu entries. That has to fail when TeX-command-list is customized.

This could be easily fixed by making the default actions customizable.

Naming the commands with a symbol and looking it up (handling error cases where they can't be found because user has removed them from the menu) is another option, but I suppose you don't want to break compatibility with earlier versions!
