It seems to work as a separate mdimporter (in /Library/Spotlight/)  
since I don't have YACED. I downloaded the installer; had it place  
the importer on my Desktop (it still forced me to restart --- silly);  
put it in /Library/Spotlight/; restarted again (for good luck); did a

mdimport -r /Library/Spotlight/LaTeX.mdimporter

and, at least the .tex files in my home directory seemed to get  
indexed. I later re-indexed /usr/local/teTeX to get those files  
indexed too.

I still wonder if I can simply replace this importer with the  
``official'' one, when it comes out, and force a re-index. Might have  
to do a

mdutil -E /

and wait, and wait, ...

Good Luck,
