The function TeX-check-engine is not interactive and I can't bind it to  key.

Hm, but there are files which require xelatex, but auctex fails to auto
detect it. For example the files found in

  \frametitle{\textarab{الشريحة الأولى}}

    \item نص عربي
    \item نص عربي
should be compiled with xelatex but does not include

I am not sure I will remember all the time to add that line to my latex
files in question nor do I find that very convenient for other users.
One could amplify the list of package which requires xelatex for
scanning and automatic detection, but what's about making
TeX-check-engine interactive?
