Is there some way to integrate this into TeXShop? So that either using the MakeIndex choice for Typeset -- or even, preferably, being able to do it all with the the pdflatexmk choice -- can be directed to use a particular .ist?

After having such a lovely front end to TeX as TeXShop, it seems a great shame to have to go to a command line to call a script.
