Thank you for that. I had not realised that it is possible to pass in
TeX commands as arguments.

I should really read the help output more carefully (or maybe this
should be in the manual?).

I managed to reduce the size of my wrapper script[1] using this
method. It would be nice to get  rid of the rest of it as well.
