Or you could write out a shell script while processing the run. 

function moduledata.archimate(filename)
  local root = xml.load(filename)
  warnIfVerbose( "Processing %s", filename)
  local shfile = io.open(tex.jobname.. ".sh", "w")
  local i = 1
  for view in xml.collected(root,"diagrams/view") do
    local viewName = xml.text(view,"/name")
    shfile:write(string.format('mutool merge -o "%s.pdf" %s "%s.pdf" ', viewName, i, tex.jobname))
    i = i + 1

and process that shell script at the end of the run.
