    so, one can even have the same formats for dvi/pdf and have the loading 
    done with \everyjob (if needed)

I don't understand.

Making proper behavior dependent on \everyjob seems quite dubious to
me.  It could conflict with any other existing uses of \everyjob, a
standard feature.

Nor would it be possible to load hypperef in \everyjob!  Hyperref
generally has to come last ...

I had the impression that all the necessary configuration files exist
already, outside of TeX, and it would be a matter of reading the right
config file, dependent on argv[0] and (ideally) command line options.
