Do you mean (set-input-method "TeX")? 

Last time I looked into that, my impression was this functionality
included less symbols than x-symbols. Besides sub and super indices were
not supported.[1]

I really did not get it to work well in a LaTeX file: either compilation
failed or the symbols were displayed quite ugly in the dvi/pdf file.

I am curious to see whether that would have performance issues on big


[1]  personal taste: the symbols provided by the input method look a lot
     uglier that the one provided x-symbol
