Here, here!

On a similar note, is there a way to tell 'pdflatex' to operate on another
file, different from the one already displayed in the Tools menu item
(without invoking TeX first)?

I seem to recall that on first invocation, it brings up a dialog box to
select the .tex file. But for all following invocations the first .tex file
selection now appears as an argument in the Tools menu item.

If not, it would be nice to somehow get 'pdflatex' (or any other tex
variants running under OSX) registered as a TeX menu item.
