I have done something along this way (wanted to experiment !) It
worked almost ok. But the real problem is that you can put anything on
the command line, so how do you make the distinction between a file
name and tex commands ? The problem is that we need a quoting
mechanism for file names inside tex, and there is none for the moment.
