1. Drop the weird (sorry Hraban) naming system and use myfilename for 
your product.

2. Use the result option on the command line, e.g. "context 
--result=myfilename prd_filename.tex".

3. Ask Hans to add the result option to the first line of the document 
which is read by the context script before it creates the PDF.

% result="myfilename"
