Besides the discussion about `subfiles' package, I think `amsthm.el'
could do a better job reg. new environments defined and optional
headings.  Further it has a bug in the way it uses `TeX-arg-length':

--8<---------------cut here---------------start------------->8---
    '("newtheoremstyle" "Style name" (TeX-arg-length nil "Space above")
      (TeX-arg-length nil "Space below") "Body font" "Indent amount"
      "Theorem head font" "Punctuation after head"
      (TeX-arg-length nil "Space after head") "Theorem head spec"))
--8<---------------cut here---------------end--------------->8---

The string "Space above" for example becomes `Initial-Input' and not
`Prompt'.  I'm attaching an improved version of `amsthm.el'.  Could you
give it a try?  I have never used the package so I would be grateful if
you could test it and give some feedback here.

Best, Arash
