I looked it up again, I meant 24.4.1, which however is not recent enough.

What I mean is this:

-  when I use x-symbol-mode (a minor mode) typing \alpha gives  α.
Lets call this prettifying.

-  when I turn x-symbol-mode off,   α is displayed again as \alpha.
Lets call this un-prettifying.

latex-pretty-symbols.el which I found in the net is neither a minor mode
nor does it provide a un-prettifying function.

Now your implementation seems also not to be a minor mode the question I
wanted to ask is, does it provide a un-prettifying function?
