wonder how I can catch the argument ...
There is no way without using --shell-escape or pipes, as far as I can
imagine. Clearly we cannot allow shell redirections in restricted mode.
Admittedly this makes having kpsewhich in the restricted list rather
useless, but I don't see any way to solve it. We'd have to add a new
primitive that expands to the output of a shell command. That would be
highly useful, but I don't see it happening :(. -k
