  (1) your script solves a inconveniency or difficulty on auctex editing 
      for emacs which is related to your native language (Turkish?)

  (2) installation of your script can be achieved without root priviledge,

then I can.  (1) is because this package is focused on improving native
language environment.  (2) is because the native language environment
is established by '/usr/bin/set-language-env' script which is invoked
by a user who want the environment, not by the root user.  In short,
'/usr/bin/set-language-env' modifies the user's dot-files such as
~/.bashrc and ~/.emacs.  

You will need to rewrite your script to be written in user's dot-files 
(by, for example, using shell alias in ~/.bashrc or changing emacs
variables in ~/.emacs).

If you are interested in adding Turkish (right?) support, please
read a document file README.i18n in 'user-ja' package.  'language-env'
package will be an extension to 'user-ja'.
