Thanks, committed.

I don't know.  I think it's much less frequently used than the
button-enabled LaTeX, View, BibTeX, and Spell commands, and there's not
too much space for buttons anyway.  (And basically, nobody uses Emacs
with a tool-bar anyway. :-))

At least with the GTK tool-bar, if there are more buttons than there's
space, you get a > symbol you can press to see the others.  But I'm not
sure if that's supported in a similar good way by Xaw, Athena, or
whatever toolkit people build emacs with.  So as long as nobody checks
that, I'd prefer not to overload the tool-bar.
