That might be true, but readers of comp.text.tex are a small minority
(and probably the most technically astute one) among  TeX users. Well,
sadly newsgroup readers are a small minority in general nowadays. So I
think my original point still stands.

That is nice. Unfortunately of the 6 sites that I personally know
about, none has AUCTeX installed :-(

Anyway, the main question is: Do AUCTeX maintainers want to integrate
it in Emacs anytime soon? (Or at all?)

IMHO having AUCTeX integrated would be beneficial to both AUCTeX as it
would reach a wider audience, and also to Emacs as it would help users
better manage their tex documents.

I am sure that if there's a strong desire to integrate AUCTeX, you
will get some help.
