I wonder, would it be possible to change the order of arguments in  
displayline? TeXniscope and PDF View have the source filename before  
the pdf filename, but Skim does it the other way around. It probably  
makes it a bit harder handling the case where the source is omitted,  
but it would simplify the code on TextMate's side, allowing me to  
address all the viewer calls with a single call.

Not a big deal really, but it would be nice.
