» Although TeX is very powerful it is still hard to create two PDF files from
» a single source in one run. 

I think David had  a script in mind, simple as:

pdflatex '\def\options{screenversion}\input' "$1.tex"
mv $1.pdf $1-screen.pdf
pdflatex '\def\options{paperversion}\input' "$1.tex"
mv $1.pdf $1-paper.pdf

etc. You can also have \PassOptionsToPackage in the pdflatex line, if

that's how I would do it...
