I have had enough documents altered/mangled using x-symbol that I am
pretty sure I don't like its principles of operation.  One of the
reasons that preview-latex has been designed not to touch or alter the
buffer text in any manner is that I have seen what can happen when
things go wrong with x-symbol.  x-symbol also is not restricted to TeX.

Given the inputenc package, I actually see no point in read/write
conversion in that manner.
