The patch involved modifying TeX's \everypar instead of LaTeX's \@@par.

The pdfsync package is hosted on SourceForge.  Perhaps Jérôme would 
consent to giving one of us commit and release privileges there.  I 
participate in a couple of SourceForge projects, so my systems are 
configured for access.  But I probably wouldn't be the right one to do 
that, because I use BBEdit + TeXniscope as my LaTeX frontend and 
viewer.  It would be important to thoroughly test that any changes 
didn't break anything in iTeXMac and TeXShop.  Though I suppose beta 
versions of the package could go to the list for testing before putting 
new versions on SourceForge.
