With "matching \bigl..\bigr" do you mean something like
`show-paren-mode' or auto insertion of the matching parenthesis?  We
have the last feature since 11.88, but you're probably already ware of

That would be great!  As you may know, AUCTeX is a GNU project and as
such we require contributors to assign copyright to FSF.  If you are
willing to do so and release your contributions under the terms of
GPLv3, then fill this form

and follow the instructions in the header.  Keep in mind an assignment
for the AUCTeX package covers only contributions to AUCTeX, but
assignment for the Emacs package covers both Emacs and AUCTeX (and any
other package included in GNU Elpa repository).

After this, just submit to this mailing list your patches against the
current git version and we will discuss about them ;-)
