Brad, isn't there still the option for users to provide their own  
shell script, like with latexmk.pl?

Btw Christian, you might want to look into latexmk.pl, and perhaps  
contact the author of that package if it doesn't do all this extra  
stuff you want. It was designed to call things like makeindex and  
bibtex and latex again and again the right number of times. It should  
in theory be able to handle all other "extra stuff", but that depends  
on whether its author might be interested in that.
