[TxMt] embedding snippets; find in macros

Hi all,

Unless I'm doing something terribly stupid, it seems it's impossible to 
use a snippet while in another snippet without losing the tab 
placeholders of the first... Is that right? That'd be sort of 
disappointing, especially since snippets are part of what makes 
TextMate elegant and customizable---would that be hard to fix?

And a related automating-stuff point: Would it be possible for find 
operations performed by macros not to wipe out the previous find 
string? This too I think would immediately make lots of things possible 
that were only semi-possible before... (Alternatively, you could get 
the same functionality by allowing commands to select text and move the 
cursor without the mediation of the separate window, which would be 
even cooler---you could do stuff like selecting the current sentence or 
the current block---but seems like it might be a larger undertaking...)
