I am far from any hostility versus auctex and I like this list very much!

But you may know a "eierlegende Wollmilchsau" (hopefully some can nicely 
translate that) and many people think emacs is close to that, 
unfortunately it can not feed people real food or some better wine. 
Whether it induces addiction, I do not know.

AucTeX has become a beautifull part of emacs. I have been using it for 
quite some time with much success. However, given the earthen nature of 
things, any thing has its limits. And since I do not wish to spent to 
much time on something which can be done otherwise with a much reduced 
effort, I have this heretic view of using a shell or a makefile for 
completion of indices or "texify". Sophistication is not always as handy 
as usefullness.

Thanks for AucTeX, but sometimes I will step aside, sorry for that
