[Tugindia] Why a Devnag Pre-processor?

Well. this may be an obvious question (but may not be too  obvious also):
 Why actually is a devnag pre-processor required? Is it not possible to 
integrate it like ArabTeX for instance. I was playing around with LyX 
and trying to write devnag code and because of the requirement of devnag 
preprocessor to have an input file with extension .dn, the only way I am 
able to run it is through an external script called through lyx ;-
 cp $1 $1.dn
devnag $1.dn $1
latex $1

(pretty ugly, huh) $1 is filename.tex generated by lyx.
