Oo, that would be a great thing! I wonder what the number may look like, 
have I had a count of the visits to
System Pref -> Tex Distr -> passwd in the last couple of months.

And yet, at least some of us have to remember in which TeX distribution 
they are currently :)

I think that our Macs have a great way of keeping our minds replenished:

I have been envisioning a small icon ("status menus") at the right end of 
the Desktop menu bar that indicates which is the currently active tex 
distribution by depicting either [gwTeX] or [TeXLive-07]. Perhaps such 
TeX-distr icon could also be used as an alternative way to switch the tex 
distr, with a pull down submenu (like the one for the languages and 
keyboard viewers; AirPort station icon, etc.)
