Great! It really will make life much easier for many people.

It worked as expected except for two things, where it "failed"
consistently:

- Before the list of real labels the script also presented as such some
lines of code from my preamble, like "\usepackage{pdfsync" and
"\def\quotedfrom ... [long]". ???

- When you highlight some text and then select the script (great
idea!), if it does not find any label containing the highlighted text,
then all what one gets is an "AppleScript Runner" error telling you
that TeXShop encountered a type 1 error. I hope there is a way of
poping up the proper message.
