This looks like a sensible answer, and indeed with some amount of
patience I could use it to judge where read-string should be left as
read-string and where it should become TeX-read-string.

However, I'm not sure: what would go wrong if we used TeX-read-string
even when plain ASCII is expected?  Isn't plain ASCII transparently
mapped to plain ASCII anyway?
