Wrapper, package or bundle... Whatever it is, when it first appeared on
the list I though it was a good idea to implement a compact way to keep
TeX files away all together. It will be more practical and MacOSXish.
I will support happily any initiative in this direction.
As an aside: I will like to know if there is someone (like me) who
still works with DVI files and does not like MacDviX?
(i.e. somebody would like to use a fast Cocoa DVI previewer?)
(Who hopes Replay-All will do the right thing...)
Please see <http://www.esm.psu.edu/mac-tex/> for list
guidelines, information, and LaTeX/TeX resources.
