Single click topic publish and redirect to the final pdf

How do I publish a topic using the Extensions/PublishPlugin and redirect to the final output in a single click?

What I would like is to modifiy the view template of the web such that a Print button can publish the topic and redirect to the finished pdf.

I've tried adding the following line to the view template:
%TMPL:DEF{"printable"}%<span><a class='foswikiPopUp' href='%SCRIPTURLPATH{"rest"}%/PublishPlugin/publish?web=%BASEWEB%;topiclist=%BASETOPIC%;format=pdf;skin=ecoprint;outfile=%BASETOPIC%;endPoint=pub/publish/%BASETOPIC%.pdf'>PDF</a></span>%TMPL:END%

But the endPoint parameter does not seem to work as expected.

Just for kicks I tried redirectto instead of endPoint, no luck. Anyone know if there is a good way to redirect to an attachment after a rest script?

Ah... the publish script is a bit wierd, it doesn't obey the normal (new) rules for rest script returns.

Add a task "make publish rest script obey normal rules for redirectto" and I'll fix it.
