You can try this untested (Bourne) shell script:

	input=`basename "$1" .pdf`
	pages=`pdfinfo "$input.pdf" | grep ^Pages: | awk '{print $NF}'`
	formt=`pdfinfo "$input.pdf" | grep ^Page\ size: | awk '{print $NF}'  
| tr -d '()'`
	while test $i -le $pages
	#    texexec --verbose --pdfselect --batch --selection=$1 -- 
result="$input-Page-$i.pdf" "$input.pdf"
	    texexec --verbose --pdfselect --batch --paperformat=$formt -- 
selection=$1 --result="$input-Page-$i.pdf" "$input.pdf"
	    i=`expr $i + 1`

I'm not sure how texexec will handle spaces in file names! You could  
also substitute silent for verbose. (It can be simplified to not use  
pdfinfo but accept parameters instead. Minimum is the number of  
pages. The page's format might be unnecessary, but I haven't tested
