The lwarp LaTeX package is what writes lateximages.cmd, so this
would be a problem.

lwarpmk is a texlua program which should be made executable by the

It looks like the best approach would be to have the lwarp package write
a simple list into a file called lateximages.txt, then have the texlua
program lwarpmk be the one to process the list by executing the
utility programs pdfseparate, pdfcrop, and pdftocairo for each entry.
I'll try to make this change soon.
