I agree with you in general, but from the discussion in this thread I  
had evidence of the contrary: this is not *easy* in the case of latex- 
generated files, since the workflow may fail for many different reasons.
Now, I also have learnt from the recent posting by Joseph that in emacs 
+auctex (which is my scenario) there is already a way to detect  
successful runs of the latex-ing process. I am willing to explore this  
route, so that, as you suggest, I can at the end launch a reload of  
the file.
Does anybody know more about this possibility?
