:-) That is definitely not "new think". There are many places
in the Axiom source where you already must do this, e.g. the
src/algebra/*.spad.pamphlet files.

Anyway, I think that if you are reading the .dvi file you will
already know the names of the generated files. If you are a
developer working directly with the generated files then I
think you would know enough to check the Makefile to see how
this file is generated. But it might well be convenient if there
was a nice wrapper for

  grep '<<whatever.h>>=' *.pamphlet

along the lines of what Martin Rubey wrote for the
*.spad.pamphlet files.
