[AUCTeX-devel] RFC: Must end with a slash

Hello developers,

on rereading AUCTeX manual I find there that the variables:
- TeX-style-path
- TeX-style-global
- TeX-style-local
- TeX-auto-local
"must end with a slash" (each of the items for TeX-style-path).

Beside the fact that it should probably rather read "must end with a
directory separator", I believe it is not true anymore (I seem to recall
that it had to be true many, many years ago).  At least, nowadays my own
variables (or TeX-style-path items) do not end with a slash, but it
looks like AUCTeX does not mind.  Moreover, no such prescription is
reported in the lisp doc strings, neither do they are initialized

Therefore I think we should remove the "must end with a slash"
prescription from the manual.

Do you agree?  Is there anything I am missing?
