[OS X TeX] ai, eps, pdf and TeXShop

I noticed that illustrator files with the extension ai can be  
displayed in preview.app but not in TS (in TS, ai files open as  
text). I also noticed that if I save an illustrator file in ai format  
and then manually change the extension to pdf, TS opens it with no  
trouble (with the correct bounding box, too). Hence my question: is  
it possible to teach TS to treat files with the extension ai as if  
they were pdf? This would save me a lot of time because I normally  
save illustrator files as eps, then have TS do the conversion to pdf  
(if I save to pdf in illustrator, I get a graphic whose bounding box  
is the size of the page, not the size of the graph).
