Andrew's question was not very direct: we can guess why you think you
need unibyte mode, but any use of Emacs in multibyte mode (i.e. in
its default mode) that "doesn't do what you want" is a bug.

Most people in the latin-1 world use Emacs in multibyte mode
with great success, including using LaTeX.  So you'll need
to show a step by step situation where Emacs fails to do what
it should.  And then we'll either fix the problem or tell
you where you did something wrong.
