Here is what you inspired me to do :)

1. Download SpotInside <http://www.oneriver.jp/SpotInside/index_e.html>
2. Launch it.
3. In the preferences set the "Default Query Format" to:

(kMDItemTextContent == "%@*"cd) && ((kMDItemCreator == "*tex*"c) ||
(kMDItemContentType == "org.tug.tex")))

(For an odd reason you must hit return for the change to take).

Now, you have a dedicated program for search LaTeX files (and the PDF's
created from LaTeX).

For more power go to the terminal and type mdimport /usr/local/texlive (to
add TeX Live to your Spotlight path).
