I've seen such postprocess scripts before, and found the following way to 
do it without inventing new build features:


Thus the script depends formally on the other session, running in its own 
derived session context, although that is quite heavy.

For codegen their might be special considerations to get more directly to 
the result, without relaunching the command-line version of it.  Florian 
should be able to say more.
