No, I understand that.

This contradicts what you wrote before:

My understanding (which is what I originally wrote) is that TeXShop
is calling pdfetex directly (or via a symlink) and with the --shell-
escape option when I typeset something, and that no engine or shell
script is involved. (I'm talking about the default setup, and using
pdftex, not tex+dvips+gs here.) As far as I can see, that's true. If
there's a shell script involved, where is it, and what's its name?
My original question stands: Is there a way to write an applescript
macro in TeXShop to pass the "-jobname NAME" option to pdfetex? I
want to do this on a per-document basis, so hard-coding something
into a preference or shell script won't do it. Does anyone know if
this can be done, or how to do it?
