... or makeindex, or want to use latexmk, etc. Hiding the files by  
setting invisible bits will end up wasting disk space since you're  
sure to forget the files are actually present unless you run a script  
to remove them. Still think the best thing is not to worry about them  
and remove them with a macro or TeXShop's built-in command (suitably  
tweaked) when things are done.

Good Luck,
