Good idea.  Indeed, only one the first option is passed to pdftex:

$ texexec --verbose --nonstopmode --pdf \
--passon="-file-line-error -recorder" a.tex | grep 'running.*pdftex'

TeXExec | running: pdftex -progname=context -fmt=cont-en -translate-file=natural.tcx -file-line-error --8bit a.tex \emergencyend
