looked like the appropriate slot in Project Builder, and it did not seem
to work. If I do this, will OzTeX invoke Carbon vim instead of starting
up Classic mode to launch Classic vim? (That would make me happy!)

I'm not a programmer (haven't done any in a long time, anyhow) and
haven't used Project Builder, so I can't help there. I just looked in
the application package and opened PkgInfo and Info.plist by hand to see
what was inside -- perhaps you could just edit them that way. (I have
no idea if OS X expects this information to be hard-coded elsewhere as
well.) I'd recommend studying the PkgInfo and Info.plist files for an
assortment of other packaged applications to see how they do it.

Wish I knew! I haven't quite been able to tell how this all fits
together in OS X yet if an application doesn't have Classic Mac OS-style
type/creators. Some seem to behave better than others, and I haven't
sorted out exactly why, yet.
I asked the question, in fact, because Andrew was asking about
type/creators for editors that folks might want to use with OzTeX. You
might want to get into direct contact with him: <andrew@...>
If you guys figure it out, I'd love to hear what you come up with.
