Basically collecting assignments.

AUCTeX is a separate project and works with a variety of Emacsen.  It
is also released more often than every 5 years or so.  I don't think
that at the current point of time there is much room for improvement.
It might be possible to create a tarball for dropping into an Emacs
tree before compiling and autoload generation (which is somewhat
similar to what we do to create an XEmacs package).  But I don't see
it change the situation much.
