I thought at least 'ltx' was, but I'll defer.

Yes I'll do that. In response to your follow-up, extensions should
override lexers when it comes to run/compile commands.

Then we go back to the `mime_types.conf` days where there should be an
option to define commands in `_USERHOME` in another conf file or two. I
want mostly everything to be configured using Lua, not plain text or
"magic files". The user should only need to only worry about setting
things like = 'whatever'
