Currently it looks like TeXworks only associates its self with .tex,
.ltx and .pdf on OS X.  The relevant file in the TeXworks source is
TeXworks.plist.in, under the XML section starting with

I agree that this list should be expanded. However I am reluctant to
modify this file myself as I am trying to keep changes to existing
files in my fork to a minimum. This policy ensures an easy merge of my
work back into SVN if/when the time comes.

Perhaps it would be more appropriate to address this issue by
submitting a patch directly to the main TeXworks repo? The changes
would propagate downstream into my builds.
