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.
