Thanks for the test.

This mechanism currently works for (e)-uptex and xetex.
In my simple test, pdftex can be changed similarly.
I'll change pdftex if it is OK.

In the case of lua(jit)tex, use the option -cmdx
in the 1st argument, that is, lualatex -cmdx ...
in the case of non-ascii file name.
If -cmdx is not the 1st argument, it is simply ignored.
