I don't see how this would ever work, since TeXShop calls tex/latex/ 
pdf..tex to do the dirty work, and these command-line programs  
require files be written out to disk. So if you want the current  
changes in the editor window to be tex'd, they have to be written out  
to disk somewhere, hence the save-before-texing behavior. One could  
imagine trying to fake this by writing the file to a tmp directory,  
but this won't work except in the simplest cases.

I don't know what this means. For example, neither Mail.app nor  
TextEdit.app have horizontal scroll bars, so it seems to me that  
TeXShop's source window is perfectly standard in this regard. Do you  
mean that the editor should allow soft wrapping to be turned off?
