I thought about these too but rejected them. What useful kind of
material would get indexed within those files? There already exists a
DVI importer and that, along with one for .tex and the existing .pdf
importers, would index the information from the documentation files
which, I believe, is more what one might be hoping for. By the way,
sudo mdimport -f /usr/local/teTeX
should index all the documentation and get the file names for the
rest from gwTeX; very handy! If you don't like the Terminal get
SpotlightIndexer and make sure to check the Force indexing option in
