Mere front end??  Did you mean miracle?  The new sync system is 
particularly amazing.

I bought an app called SmartWrap a while ago that builds this 
functionality into all text windows. It seems silly to pay $20 to 
augment a free program, but it's one solution. Wrapping and re-wrapping 
is a nuisance, but it's helpful if you share the editing with Linux 
users, who usually hate super-long lines.

One of TeXShop's best features is its simplicity. Please bear that in 
mind when considering feature requests. People who want a 
feature-loaded tool can always use iTexMac.
