I have to agree with this...no other platform I've tried has matched what  
Nextstep/Openstep had almost a decade ago with InstantTeX/TeXView.  Has  
anybody looked at how hard it would be to make a Cocoa app (or modify, say,  
iTexMac) with the same IPC abilities?  What were your impressions? I can't  
imagine it's too horrible.
