Figure Wrapping Macro

   Suppose you want to make figures not directly with the figure
environment, but with a macro like


which would be called like

     \myfig[htp]{filename}{caption text}{label}{1}

   Now we need to tell RefTeX that the 4th argument of the `\myfig'
macro _is itself_ a figure label, and where to find the context.

     (setq reftex-label-alist
           '(("\\myfig[]{}{}{*}{}" ?f nil nil 3)))

   The empty pairs of brackets indicate the different arguments of the
`\myfig' macro. The `*' marks the label argument.  `?f' indicates that
this is a figure label which will be listed together with labels from
normal figure environments.  The `nil' entries for prefix and reference
format mean to use the defaults for figure labels.  The `3' for the
context method means to grab the 3rd macro argument - the caption.

   As a side effect of this configuration, `reftex-label' will now
insert the required naked label (without the `\label' macro) when point
is directly after the opening parenthesis of a `\myfig' macro argument.

   Again, here the configuration in the customization buffer:

     [INS] [DEL] Package or Detailed   : [Value Menu] Detailed:
                 Environment or \macro : [Value Menu] String: \myfig[]{}{}{*}{}
                 Type specification    : [Value Menu] Char  : f
                 Label prefix string   : [Value Menu] Default
                 Label reference format: [Value Menu] Default
                 Context method        : [Value Menu] Macro arg nr: 3
                 Magic words:
                 [ ] Make TOC entry    : [Value Menu] No entry
