[NTG-context] tempdir support in texexec.rb

Naively, I thought that the --tempdir option would allow the 'temporary' files created/updated at a run of texexec be written to whatever is given as --tempdir=/dir/, but it doesn't work, the files remain in the current directory. Additionally, --output seems to disallow the output be put into another directory (it's always put into `pwd`).
Is there a (better?) way to specify where these files should go?
What I'd expect is a directory layout like the following:
as a result of
$ cd files/
$ texexec --pdf --tempdir=tmp --output=out/project.pdf project
Is /me the only one who desires such a split?
