[OS X TeX] pdfsync - BBEdit - iTeXMac - AppleScript

I decided to check out pdfsync (again), and it seems that all 
incompatibilities with _all_ packages that I use have been cleaned up. 
Contratulations on this progress! (I've been naughty, and tried the 
pre-release 0.6 version).

However, it seems I have to use iTeXMac as a previewer to get all the 
functionality. However, I do not really like the editor, I prefer 
BBEdit. (with some scripts that do metapost and latex compilation for 
me - some of the features of the scripts might be handy in iTeXMac, or 
TeXShop: creating a draft version without altering the source, the 
graphics package in draft mode for all but the final compilation, ...).

So, I don't want to give up BBEdit, but I would like to use pdf-sync. 
Well, I thought: iTeXMac support an external editor, should work fine 
... double clicking in the pdf doesn't do a thing. Synchronization in 
the view menu is on, am I missing something obvious?

I also tried to go the other way with AppleScript, but before I try 
this myself: has anyone done this?
