This does indeed work as hoped, but it introduces two new problems, one 
of which I have solved (TeX no longer finds the generated auxiliary 
files -- solution :  add parent directory of output directory and all 
sub-directories thereof to TEXINPUTS.xetex in "texmf.cnf") and one of 
which is causing real problems :  TeXworks no longer knows where the 
output file is, so no longer refreshes the previewer after a successful 
compilation.  Can anyone advise how to work around this, please ?
