Incidentally, one way you might be able to get arXiv.org to recognise
your LaTeX file with additional %!TEX (or any other 'nonstandard')
directives is to add a line
at the start of the file. This is recognised as LaTeX source by /usr/
share/file/magic on Leopard and probably on other systems as well.
According to the TeXShop documentation the %!TEX lines only have to be
within the first 20 lines of the file to be recognised.
Alternatively, you may be able to just put the %!TEX directives after
the \documentclass at the start of the file.
