One of us probably dropped the ball, thinking that someone else was  
carrying it ;).  The last I recall, Norm Gall was going to change the  
UTI on his importer, but we needed to find out if using tug.org.tex  
would be okay.  I'll pose that question on the MacTeX list and see if  
Karl Berry has an answer.

At some point, the front ends (TS/iTM/?) should declare themselves as  
editors for that UTI, but the importer should work in the meantime if  
it exports that UTI.
