No, that won't do.  We don't want to load stuff prematurely that is
typically autoloaded.  So you really should make this depend on
completing-read-multiple being bound (which it is, if it is

And you can't use (require 'tex-crm) on a file that instead provides
'crm.  I'd rather say you'd have to use something like

(unless (fboundp 'completing-read-multiple)
  (autoload 'completing-read-multiple 'tex-crm))
