I have a library of custom scripts that I've written for editing LaTeX 
in BBEdit 8, using TeXniscope as my previewer, pdfsync for 
synchronization, BibDesk for references, and a Terminal window as a 
console log.  The system works well for me and I would be happy to 
share the scripts, but as I'm in the final week of finishing my 
dissertation, I won't be able to share them until July.  If you (or 
anyone else) is interested, drop me an email off-list.  I'll file any 
requests away for a few days, but promise to respond eventually.  If 
there is enough interest, I'll throw the whole mess up on a web page 
and announce it to the list.

That said, once my dissertation is "in the can", I'm going to upgrade 
to Tiger.  Next to Spotlight searches of TeX documentation, I'm most 
looking forward to trying the new synchronization capabilities of 
TeXShop 2.x.
