Sorry, my mistake. To be honest, to achieve what you want within the  
file system would require substantial rewriting of the various  
applications code, or...

Perhaps one could write a package along the lines of the  
\graphicspath command that is part of graphicx?

TeXShop is only a previewer for TeX/LaTeX and uses the typesetting  
system to produce documents. As such, whatever file is processed  
needs to run with the typesetting system. Whatever you do at a  
TeXShop program level is likely to produce errors with specific  
packages and programs.
