Indeed: typing 'something.tif' twice should not be necessary. But the
following could theoretically make sense (in analogy to GNU sed's
-i/--in-place switch (which creates a temporary file and later
*overwrites* the original file):
gdalwarp -i something.tif -t_srs EPSG:XXXX
However, as one hardly get things right in the first run: there is a
good chance that the result is not what you want -- and the original
file is gone :-(. At least this happens to me whenever I use sed's -i
switch. So I wouldn't see a need for introducing this behaviour in GDAL
command line utilitiies.
