[OS X TeX] OT: Authoring+Editing with LaTeX/Mac Integration

I have been in search of a good tool for the Authoring + Editing  
stage of preparing a manuscript (a textbook in this case). My primary  
goal is to find a tool that allows me to WRITE a document unfettered  
with concerns about Design + Printing. During the writing process, an  
ability to OVERSEE the organization of the content is important.  
Direct INTEGRATION with LaTeX at the Design + Printing stage is the  
final wish.

So far, I have found Scrivener (http://www.literatureandlatte.com/ 
scrivener.html) as the most likely tool to accomplish the WRITE and  
(some aspects of the) OVERSEE parts of the process. The downside is,  
its only INTEGRATION with LaTeX is through MultiMarkDown. This leaves  
me a bit ... unimpressed (I started a thread on the Scrivener forum  
with further comments about this for those interested).

Before I go further, I wondered what experiences others might be  
willing to share.
