Using EF with Papers?

Does anyone have experience using EagleFiler in conjunction with Papers? Papers is optimized for academic PDFs, which has a lot of value for me. But it does not handle any other file types, and probably has other drawbacks. (I have not used it yet.)

The ideal might be some way to keep the two synchronized, so that EF could be used for all documents, and in addition the academic PDFs would appear in Papers. Is this doable, for example, with scripts? Suggestions welcome.

I’ve heard from some EagleFiler users who are doing that. I think it works best to let EagleFiler manage the files/folders, and import select documents into Papers by reference (so that they share those files). No scripts are necessary.
