I don't want to _move_ stuff out of 21.4 until it's been beaten on a
bit by the testers.
There are also some cases where there are shadows in the alist. I
think it's probably a good idea to keep any shadowing regexps in the
defvar in the appropriate order, at least for now.
Note that add-to-list doesn't protect us at all if somebody changes a
regexp, eg from "\\.tex$" to "\\.\\(tex\\|sty\\)$".
I don't have a better immediate suggestion, though; the situation is
not really any better at the moment.
