Sorry, I didn't make myself clear.
(Using TeXShop 1.35e) I see these extra engines as options to LaTeX in
a window open on the source file. But I don't see them in the
"Typeset" menu, which means they aren't available when I want to run
(some version of) TeX on a file I have edited externally. Also, when I
invoke LaTeX on a file with the initial line
TeXShop runs XeLaTeX on the file only if the source is open for editing
in TeXShop at that point. Since I almost never open files in TeXShop
for editing, I don't get the benefit of this new functionality, but I
can't see anything that should prevent adding these other engines to
the general Typeset menu. My question was whether I was just missing
something, and there is actually some way to get this behavior (without
opening the source file in TeXShop); or if not, whether it might not be
possible to add it.
