Nice ideas. Since TeXShop is now a sourceforge project it is best to  
make feature requests at <http://sourceforge.net/tracker/? 
group_id=155796&atid=797241>, the projects Feature Request page. I  
actually see that item (1) has been requested already (did you do  
that? it is anonymous.) but I didn't see (2) there. It's a good idea  
to get a sourceforge login; easy and safe and then they'll know who  
sent it and get more information if needed.

Good Luck,
