ah, yes I now re-read the old thread.

Tassilo suggested

  (setq TeX-error-description-list '((".*" . "Go figure!")))

Could it be considered that AUCTeX before using the
checks the format file in use for this compilation
and if not LaTeX then uses this alternate list

((".*" . "Type `l' with the point here to go to log message"))

Perhaps not by default, but at least as an optional
behaviour ?
