Sadly, no. I've no idea how much actual experience you have with LaTeX
and the kind of work you produced, but what I've found (that's two
books, few hundreds pages large each, with tables, equations and
pcitures) is that automatic output is never, never perfect. There's
always a need for in-place tweaks.

Passepartout was an interesting concept (especially since it could be
used as a publishing server), but it couldn't work everywhere for
reasons outlined above.
