We should never recommend (require <foo>) as a way to change Emacs's
behavior, since it directly conflicts with our convention that loading
a file should not significantly alter Emacs's behavior.

OTOH we can expose&preload `c-ts--activate` and tell users to use


in their `.emacs` (or use another name for it, of course).
