I already use this command frequently, whenever there is a compilation 
error to fix. But I tend to compile (cmd-shift-L) almost every 30 
seconds, having to hit another shortcut every time as well is not 

My beef with the all the aux files is that they make it more difficult 
to find files in the Finder. Maybe if there were a preference in the 
Finder to hide all files with certain extentions...

Whoever comes up with a bullet-proof solution for this, deserves 
praise. Ideally such a solution could be worked into TeXShop itself.
