Where 2 is concerned, it isn't really necessary to have TextMate 
'hijack' certain extensions because you can use the Finder's info 
window to make changes to which app opens which files.

I would, however, like TextMate to set its creator code when I open a 
file that was created in another app, make a change, and save it.  
Maybe #4 is the best fit there.
