Is it complicated to add in options for obvious teX variants, such as 
RevTeX for all those of us writing papers for Phys. Rev. ? I only ask 
because I had a slightly annoying time getting RevTeX4 in the right 
places so that TeXShop would see it properly. They are also recommending 
bibtex in RevTeX 4, so including that would certainly be a good thing.
