[OS X TeX] Who Wrote These, Please?

Quite a while ago there was lots of activity writing macros  
(Applescript [direct]) for TeXShop. In particular there were a couple  
that I use all the time (with variations): Delete Auxiliary Files and  
Open Selection.

I know that TeXShop has a Trash Aux Files command but I tend to use  
the macro mentioned above since it's so easy to configure the  
extension list. I even have two versions; one to delete most  
auxiliary files and one to also delete .pdf and .bbl files for a  
complete cleanup. It only cleans up the auxiliary files associated  
with the root file name.

The Open Selection macro is nice because it gets the extension from  
the surrounding context (\usepackage, \input, etc.) and searches for  
the file using the kpsewhich. Very nice for examining included  
package files, etc.

I am trying to put together a little BOF workshop on customizing  
TeXShop for the PracTeX 2006 conference and would like to include  
these macros (at least as examples) so I'd like to get ion touch with  
their authors. I have no name for the author of the Delete Auxiliary  
Files and only know the author of Open Selection as mdh.

Good Luck,
