Wow, this is a great news, parsing macros created with xparse has
always been in my wishlist, but I've never found the time (or the
boldness) to actually undertake the task!

I couldn't look closely to the patch, but looking to your past
contributions I'm confident you did a good job :-)

My understanding is that \DeclareDocumentCommand syntax can be fairly
wild, I'm not sure Emacs can always get it right.  I'll check out your
contribution when I'll find some time (I hope in one or two weeks, I'm
pretty busy lately), if your style file works in most common cases I
think we can include it in AUCTeX.
