This brings up a question that perhaps you can answer.  I have added a
number of things in LaTeX-mode-hook, which is why I wrap them inside a
lambda function, but is it better to do this or to have one line like
the one you suggest per item that I add?  This only gets read once,
but anything that can speed loading of my Preferences.el is welcome.

Cheers, José
