[TxMt] TextMate protocol

Awhile back I seem to remember Allen suggesting he could create a 
TextMate protocol (e.g. txmt://path/to/my/file). I've come to the 
conclusion that if this was available, I would use it a lot.

Here's one example:

I use Markdown syntax for most of my writing nowadays, but once I've 
written something, I want to view it looking nice in a web browser. 
Invariably, I need to edit the file later. I have three options: I 
could put up a text area and edit it in the web browser. I could launch 
my ftp program and Edit Externally... the file. Or I could 
automatically launch TextMate, my editor of choice, with a simple 
txmt:// link on the web page.

Best, Eric
