Alternatively, could TeXworks /infer/ the correct "typesetting engine" 
from the filename extension for files with extensions other than ".tex" 
?  This would eliminate the need for line-1 typesetting engine pragmats 
for files with non-standard extensions and use instead a user-editable 
look-up table given the correct "typesetting engine" for each 
non-standard extension (e.g., ".a68").
