please do consider that things have their own logic:

- what should happen if I want to open my old pdf but i made a mistake 
and opened the tex file next to it.
- why not open the tex file in TeXShop, if you just have to make a minor 
spell correction

What TeXShop should do is implement both things and let the user make 
its own choice, but your suggestion is not just fine tuning.
