[OS X TeX] TeXWorks wish list?

I don't suppose anyone would want to revisit the idea of a ``bundle''  
for TeX documents?

Other things I'd want:

  - outline mode / collapsing text insets (and a nifty control for  
determining what's visible)
  - a palette of all labels defined in a publication (dynamically up- 
dated as files are modified)
  - line numbering (could you take a look at the code in smultron for  
this? It works nicely there even when text wrap is turned on)
  - while I hate to add another button, perhaps one which would toggle  
'twixt monospaced and proportional fonts?
  - duplicate the collection of nifty math palettes from TeXshop?
  - Templates menu too
  - a scripting language? Perhaps Lua?

Lastly, would it be possible to work up some sort of interaction  
between TeX and TeXworks which was direct? One thing of which I've  
dreamed is a facility for TeX placing into the editing interface a  
pair of numbers for each paragraph, how many lines tighter or looser  
they could be typeset.
