It's better to send patches to the development list.

Anyway, sorry for the late reply.  I wanted to take the time to look
thoroughly into the patch and what it is supposed to achieve.

If this is done for citation macros, one could ask why it is not done
for the other options covered in `reftex-view-crossref'.

Does RefTeX know about these macros?  That means, have you added them to
`reftex-cite-format' or the like?  Because if RefTeX already knows the
macros, perhaps we could use this information to create the regexp above
without having to introduce a new variable.
