Code is data and data is sometimes code, sometimes malformed code, sometimes 
not code at all. Like in that example that I posted, where Emacs is kind enough 
to point out that "‘(latex-mode (TeX-engine . default))’ is a malformed 
function".  Eval'ing yields about the same message: "(invalid-function 
(latex-mode (TeX-engine . default)))"
