I agree, Stefan's patch does make sense (thank you Stefan).  OTOH, we
had a strong opinion on "No External Dependencies" (until now) and the
change above would change that.

My vote is not to change many things (besides the preview bug), get
AUCTeX 13.1 through the door and after that, bump required Emacs version
to 25.1.  Maybe that will also open the door to cl-lib.  Until now, we
use only macros from it and nothing at run-time.

Best, Arash
