3) You could run texi2pdf without --quiet, without --batch, and use /dev/null as
input device:

texi2pdf input.texi < /dev/null

In this way you keep the meaningful output and it will stop on the first error,
making it easy to spot. Task left to the reader: add this to your shinny new
run-and-check script!
