Very true, and the same thought had crossed my mind. I wrote a little unix
shell script that will generate the .texshop files for you for a given tree. I
will post the script when I have my computer with me to work.

The script assumes that you'll want a .texshop file for every .tex file in the
current tree, all pointing to the same project root.


if the script is used on this tree, starting from . and specifying root.tex as
the project root, .texshop files are created for all d1.tex and d2.tex files,
all pointing to root.tex. Incidently, a .texshop file for root.tex is also
created, this is harmless though.

If wanted, I'll post this script some time next week.
