Very nice tip! I have rolled it into the manual. I changed it to (for  

    export TEXEDIT='mate -w -l %d "%s"'

So that it also works with paths containing spaces (tex didn't seem  
to handle this itself).

On the subject of “external editor”, I saw this [1] about doing  
similar for less. The blog post uses open with the txmt://-scheme,  
using mate it becomes:

    export LESSEDIT='mate -l %lm %f'
