Yeah, I like the behaviour, not the name.
Could you have "view source" and "view output"?

Hmmm. I suppose so.
In that case I would like to put in a feature request to implement 
equivalent behaviour to TeXShop's "goto line" command, but there's no

feasible to automatically install scripts, so my little project is 
going very slowly at the moment.
