Hi David,

	I'm very glad to hear it, but it doesn't quite work over here so I  
want to make sure we are talking about the same thing. When you  
compile a file in TextMate, it should automatically take you to the  
corresponding page. Using the "Show in PDF (pdfsync)" command works  
fine (though we should probably rename it now, to omit the (pdfsync)  
part), as does syncing from pdf to code, but the automatic syncing on  
compile doesn't for me. Does that part work for you?

Brad, I am guessing this is because of the differences between  
sync_viewer and run_viewer? I am seeing a TODO there to make them  
work better with each other. I am guessing this is where the problems  
are? That the code using run_viewer checked for pdfsync explicitly,  
and hence was missing this new synctex stuff?
