Isn't much better to create all the intermediate files in the /tmp
directory?  (so that you never pollute your working directory, and never
need to spend time removing temporary files)

Look at the "-output-directory" option available in most recent
implementations of LaTeX.

As a side note: I use this in combination with Rubber and a shell script
to further automate the creation of final documents and previews in
AUCTeX.  You can see this at the beginning of the discussion section
