Besides a customization option we could use the prefix argument as a
"run-time toggle" for switching between both behaviors.  Although I
tend to think that `LaTeX-mark-section' is not important enough for
such a lot of influential options.

Anyway, that is not exactly the problem we were discussing.  Rather it
is if we should introduce a lot of new code in order to make the new
behavior (i.e. marking a section including subsections) available on
XEmacs.  That's what I don't really like.

What if we leave the standard behavior of `LaTeX-mark-section' as-is
and make the new behavior (provided by `outline-mark-subtree')
available via the prefix argument?  That way the normal behavior is
identical on Emacs and XEmacs but people with a moderately new
outline.el would gain the possibility to mark a section including

Oh, sorry.  Either I didn't know that you had to moderate the
messages or I forgot it.
