[OS X TeX] TeXShop wish list

Version 2.0 is very nice and a welcome update. There are, however,
some things that TeXShop needs to be able to do, IMO.
1. When TeXShop writes a .engine file, wouldn't it be possible for it
to set the executable bit as well? I usually forget to do this in the
Terminal window and end up with an error message when I use the new
2. Virtually every program that has the ability to magnify/reduce the
view of a document has keyboard shortcuts to accomplish this -- often
this is dine by something like Command-+ and Command--. It would be
nice if TeXShop did something similar as well. The less I have to
mouse around the better.
3. Likewise, it would be nice to get at the TeXShop console window
without mousing to a menu to get it. Textures had Command-<zero> to
do this. I use the console window to keep track of information
gathered during the TeX run, which currently requires a lot of mousing.
I have tried to get around the lack of keyboard shortcuts for #2 and
#3 by using the Keyboard/Mouse control panel "Shortcuts" pane.
Unfortunately, there are no menu item for enlarge/reduce, and the
console window menu item changes with the document name. Frustrating.
If there are ways around these problems I'd be really glad to hear them.
