I'm probably missing something, because I don't see how "exec emacs"
will do what you want.

I'm sorry, I seem to have made a total hash of explaining something really simple. In effect, I want kill-emacs-and-exec, which takes a list of arguments, runs kill-emacs, and then execs the argument list.

In fact, since kill-emacs can't currently take a list, it could be extended to do so.

save-buffers-kill-emacs could be likewise extended.

Does that make sense now?
