[tomboy-list] Is there a command to create a new note using as specific notebook?

I'm trying to use Tomboy (btw, a great piece of software indeed!) to
take notes while reading articles, working papers, and pdf in general. I
created a notebook called 'Summaries' with a specifically edited
template. Now I'd like to create an 'Open with..' custom command which
creates a new note with the filename of the pdf as title in the
Summaries notebook. However, all I've been able to come up with is
'tomboy --new-note [%f]'.
So my question: Is there a way to tell tomboy from CLI which notebook I
want to use?
Also, since I'm at it, I'd like to add my two cents: wouldn't it be cool
to have a right-click menu entry for pdf/ps and similar files that opens
a new note with a specific template and set as note title the title and
authors of the file if the relevant metadata are present, or simply the
filename (without the full path, similarly to what happens now when
dropping mails in notes) and maybe add a thumbnail of the file?
Having such a function, there could also be a button doing the same
thing inside evince and recognising if a note related to the document is
already there, so that 1 document = 1 summary note. Imo this could be a
reasonable way to start integrating evince and tomboy.
Sorry if all this makes no sense at all, at the end of the day I'm no
