What about using Alpha as your text editor (only drawback is it still 
only available in classic). TeXShop supports external editors and 
Alpha not only is much more capable than the builtin editor in 
TeXShop for productive TeXing, but can save files with Unix or Mac 
(or, er, windows, for that matter) line endings, plus set the line 
width you wish.

And, of course,  you can set Alpha to typeset using TeXShop.
