Mathematicians use set symbols like R, C, Z, Q a lot.  The customary
way to render them tends to be a matter of taste: the "orthodox"
typographic rendition would be \mathbf{R}, since the added strokes are
a "manuscript" indication of bold-facing, like underlining is a
"manuscript" version of emphasis.

However, more often than not, the blackboard specific bolding gets
moved into print, too.  amsmath.sty (and likely amsfonts.sty too) have
\mathbb, and there are a few additional packages like bbm.sty which
provide their own versions, in this case as \mathbbm.

I find that C-c C-f C-s (for "set") is not yet taken in math mode.  It
might be nice to have it deliver \mathbb, or \mathbbm if bbm.sty has
been loaded.

It IS very nice to provide such a command, in one way or another. It seems that in latex-math-mode, `B is not used either, which can also be considered using for blackboard font (similarly as `c for Cal-whatever).

Can C-c C-f C-s or any other shortcut be used for \mathscr?

It also might be nice to offer the most common set symbols in the math

What do people think?
