PreTeXt includes a collection of Python routines, which are necessary for some
features (MOM here) and some conveniences, like executing certain processing
step(s) that could be done with xsltproc and other tools.
The PreTeXt-CLI is a front end to these routines with additional features.
The pretext/pretext script is a more basic command-line interface, which is
more flexible, and supports every feature available in these Python routines.
I believe the steps Steven outlines are not able to produce braille. For this
reason, and others, I personally never recommend the "devscript" option.
