I think this tries to hard to keep the old contorted logic while still
breaking backwards-compatibility with previous TeX-command-list

I think we should just special-case a check for 'file and be done (for
as long as TeX-command-list keeps its basic structure).  Future AUCTeX
programmers will thank us for it.  The present logic is too clever
just for the single purpose of interpreting "file".
