Sooner or later AUCTeX should be able to execute a full tool chain on
its own.  This would allow us to use matching process filters and
sentinels for the different tools.  I'm not sure how well AUCTeX deals
with something like texify with respect to that.

I don't think that hiding the Emacs frame after a tool chain run is a
good idea, though.  After all, one often wants to change between the
output and the source.  In that case it is handy having both visible.
