[Mac OS X TeX] Trying to get something Alpha-ish in Mac OS X

Hi Jan,

Thanks for the tip about atChange.  I suspect it would be more busy than what
I was after -- re-running TeX each time I save the file (which I do a 
lot, being
mildly paranoid about application crashses) is probably too often.

But I'll give it a try, and it looks like a *very* useful general 
tool.  I'm sure I'll
find some things to use it on...
