OK, so my workflow isn't that fancy.

I edit the tex file in $VISUAL (typically emacs).

In a shell I run "watch make document.pdf" (which handily tells me how 
I've screwed up *this time*).

I have "evince" running which polls for changes to the generated pdf and
automatically refreshes itself.

Just thought I'd throw that in there....
