Thanks for the report.  I agree, the way q-after-q is currently
implemented it can never become nil.  OTOH, News in 11.81 has this

• The language-specific insertion of quotation marks was generalized.
  The variables LaTeX-german-open-quote, LaTeX-german-close-quote,
  LaTeX-german-quote-after-quote, LaTeX-italian-open-quote,
  LaTeX-italian-close-quote, and LaTeX-italian-quote-after-quote are now
  obsolete.  If you are not satisfied with the default settings, you
  should customize TeX-quote-language-alist instead.

AUCTeX 11.81 was released in September 2005, I think the transition
period (even in Emacs time calculation) is over and we can safely delete
them which would also fix the bug above.

ngerman.el is another candidate.

Best, Arash
