Indeed, it's not.  Surprisingly so.  I remember when working on the
sml-mode, nobody understood what were my problems (and I didn't know about
tex-mode back then).

Indeed, and many more packages either do it or would want to do it.

Yes, tho it shouldn't be so special since tex-mode, erlang-mode, sml-mode,
and many more have the same need.  Scheme-mode, and lisp-mode could as well,
actually.  Basically any foo-mode that provides a foo-send-region or
foo-send-file to some inferior-foo-mode process.

Of course: I'm working on it.
