Karl:  Currently, users can invoke the toolchain

prepmx -> pmx -> tex -> musixflx -> tex -> dvips -> ps2pdf

or just mtx, which is sym-linked to (or, on Windows, invokes) the
wrapper script mtx.lua that, by default, does all of the above
(and options to change the defaults).

The script and the sym-link (or invoking binary) will, as proposed, be
m-tx.lua and m-tx, resp.
