Ok. So that means that the rtf.mdimporter is grabbing them as they  
are identified as plain-text.

I get this:

[gall at ludwig v4] $ /usr/bin/mdimport -d1 Chapter-1.tex
2005-05-03 11:01:50.637 mdimport[2440] Import '/Users/gall/Documents/ 
Academic/Projects/PhilofPsych/v4/Chapter-1.tex' type  
'dyn.ah62d4rv4ge81k3p2' no mdimporter

So, I am going to have to write an importer for .tex files made by  
emacs and such.
