OK, so it turns out that I'm really impatient (or just
procrastinating).  The suspect is `prettify-symbols-default-compose-p',
which is probably unsuitable for (La)TeX.

[a few minutes later]

So I've just found out about `tex--prettify-symbols-compose-p'.  And
I cloned the AUCTeX git repo and learned that (contrary to 11.89)
prettifying symbols should Just Work, without any handiwork.  I'll have
to convert to using the development version of AUCTeX...

Man, I *am* stupid and impatient.  Please consider my questions
