I just added sty, cls and clo to the extension list array and it  
allowed me to view  files with those extensions.

To activate it I ran

sudo qlmanage -r

and logged out and back in (I don't know if the sudo is needed but I  
also don't know where the system puts the ql databases). Only files  
that have Creator set to TeXs (TeXShop) are viewable since that's the  
place I changed the info.plist. I could make other sty files viewable  
by opening them and overwriting by doing a Save As... in TeXShop.

Good Luck,
