OK, both ways have their own interest and are fine with me.
If you want to go for (2), then you should start with
  1) Tags for marking how to extract compilable source files.
  2) Scheme routines to extract the compilable source files.
This is more or less what Felix Breuer did, except that he used XSLT
for step 2. This is also possible, but less natural from the TeXmacs
point of view (and therefore requiring additional things to be done).

Are you familiar with
  (1) simple TeXmacs style files
  (2) scheme programming

Best wishes, Joris
