You can do column selections w/o the mouse. Simply press and release
the option modifier to toggle the selection type.

I'll consider what can be done. I would like to make it simpler to
reflow indented paragraphs. I may be able to detect them, but maybe
that'll end up seeming inconsistent.

Ah, but macros do not require you to write any code.
Try this (menu choices):
Automation -> Start Macro Recording
Edit -> Select -> Line
Edit -> Cut
Automation -> Stop Macro Recording
Now you have a macro that cuts the current line. You can then select:
Automation -> Save Scratch Macro
Name it “Yank” and press ctrl-y while in the key equivalent field. Then
you can use ctrl-y to cut the current line.
Remember that TextMate has clipboard history, so while this doesn't
append to the kill buffer (as I think emacs do) you can still paste
previous cuts by using Paste Previous.
