Hi Alex,

thanks again for your contribution.  I think it's fine in principle to
support Flymake, as long as this doesn't introduce dependence on
external packages.  We strive to keep dependencies as low as possible.

I'm concerned by this change.  We haven't used lexical binding so far
because we used to support very old Emacsens.  While this change may
be desirable, I've the feeling that AUCTeX relies on dynamic binding.
I've opened a ticket as a memo for anyone willing to work on it:

Does your patch fundamentally rely on lexical binding or can work also
with dynamic binding?

In addition, I'm not sure latex.el is the right place for this.  The
file contains only stuff for editing LaTeX documents.  For example,
support for ispell is in its own module, required by latex.el.  What
other people thinks about this?
