In TextMate we check for %!PS, but of course that's neither here nor
there in this discussion ;). In any case, TextMate obeys extensions
over first line matches, so a file with extension tex is a LaTeX
file, end of story.
Isn't there a way to tell emacs to treat all files with extension
"tex" as tex files too?
