TeX-auto-generate'ing those classes automatically adds counters to
style files, this is why I didn't provide patches for these classes.

Those counters are defined in `latex.el' using a plain TeX syntax, but
I don't know TeX very much.  As far as I can see, in TeX counters are
defined with `\countdef', `\newcount' or defining a macro called
address@hidden'.  In `latex.ltx' there are many more counters defined in
these ways.

Knowing the correct TeX syntax, we could add to `tex.el' a regexp
matching TeX counters and TeX-auto-add counter type.  In this case
TeX-auto-add-type counter in `latex.el' wouldn't be needed anymore.
