[TxMt] File differencing

I thought about trying to make a TextMate plugin to integrate with 
Apple's FileMerge (/Developer/Applications/Utilities/FileMerge) but 
TextMate seems to only be able to give me the name of the current file, 
not any other open file, and anyway it would only work on saved files, 
not files that had changes made, and furthermore you can't really edit 
files in FileMerge, not that you'd want to since the idea is to edit in 
TextMate. So, in summary, this would indeed be nice to have in
