Would there be any possibility of extending this to make it a more general purpose tool?

I often find that I need to:

 - take a set of graphics in a mix of .eps and .pdf format
 - distill the .eps files to .pdf
 - move the graphics into a ``graphics'' subdirectory
 - create .tex files from a standard template to match the names of all the .pdfs
 - typeset the .tex files
 - use Adobe Acrobat to make .eps files of the new .pdf files
 - move all but the .eps files into a ``source'' subdirectory for safe-keeping
 - ftp the the .eps files to a particular server folder

I suppose I should look at using Automator to do the above (unless someone has a better suggestion?)
