TeXShop is completely independent of the TeX distribution. I have  
tested it with

	a) Gerben's old teTeX based distribution

	b) Gerben's new TeXLive based distribution

	c) Straight TeXLive (2005) from TUG

It works fine with all three. I am working right now on a mechanism  
which would
determine the active TeX distribution so the user wouldn't need to  
worry about
modifying preferences.

This remark applies equally to other TeX front ends, to LaTeXiT, to  
the MacTeX
distribution, etc. After an initial couple of days of concern, I  
think we can relax.
