Uhm, good point but I really don't know which option to choose: for me
`TeX-command-compile-all' and `TeX-command-run-all' are equally good.

Thanks for that, I'll make this change in my patch to suggest "Index"
when needed.  For the record, this work has been a bit harder than I
initially thought, but I should be able to submit a patch by the end
of the week.  By the way, I've always found the name "Index" for that
command a bit misleading: without looking to the list of commands (ok,
it's available also in toolbar menu "Command"), I think that everyone
would try first to run "makeindex" at C-c C-c prompt.
