Please get in touch with the other developers working on spotlight  
importers for tex files. There is a lot of movement in this area,  
with your importer basically being the third to pop up here. A UTI  
has just been agreed upon, and the last thing we need is multiple  
importers working against each other.

I'm sure Norm Gall & Adam Maxwell will respond as well, but please  
get in touch to coordinate things, to avoid making the lives of your  
collective user group very miserable indeed.

I'm willing to set up a sub-project on SourceForge if there is a  
need, but I think Norm's importer is there somewhere already.
