Thanks for the tip,

I guess I wanted my additions to be near the top of command menu,
for quick access (for reasons I don't recall, presumably it is only
a habit, I use C-cC-c for
latex but then the mouse for dvipdfmx processing... or directly
the mouse to reach for my "latex+dvipdfmx" entry)

I notice I have such an add-to-list for `TeX-expand-list' in my

I am not sure but for TeX-command-listit might be related to
some customization I did
years ago for source<->dvi back and forth sync, which did not work
with default settings back then.

Also I think I suppressed some entries of the default TeX-command-list
which were of no use to me.

I use %s.pdf it seems (for example in an entry "PDF via dvips+gs" or in
another "ps2pdf on PDF") but would also like to have an official expander
if for whatever reason %s.pdf may have issues.
