We might be able to add that in some way, again the question is: Do  
you really want the entire log file, or are you just missing some  
information in the things that the log file filter shows you atm? We  
could probably alter the behavior of TM_LATEX_ERRLVL and the log file  
filter, if we can figure out what the meaningful levels of filtering

After some thought, we should be able to do that. We are already  
doing 10 tests or so in that script, one more wouldn't hurt. It would  
require altering the program used for compiling as well, but it is  
theoretically doable. The question is really what dvi previewers are  
there out there on the mac, and how would one call them on a  
particular file?
