Yes, adding an entry to `TeX-command-list' is easy, and I don't have
anything against including support for `latexmk' in AUCTeX, my only
concern is: how nicely does it play with error reporting?  We need a
proper sentinel that parses only the last *TeX run.

Would be fine, but I didn't actually look at the code and we need
copyright assignment from every contributors to that package.  Is that

Yes, -file-line-error is definitely a great improvement but AUCTeX has
still some problems with warnings, I'm often brought to supp-pdf.mkii
when reviewing compilation log.
