It's definitely a priority for me to keep the GUI of TextMate as simple
as possible -- I don't like adding settings/options unless they really
do make sense, and I don't like features that may get in the way for
people who do not use these features.
I do see some concerned about bloat (outside this ML also), but
although I doubt any software author would declare bloat his goal, I
definitely have the opposite goal. Finding the features/infrastructure
that give optimal end-user flexibility is certainly what I try to
pursue with TextMate.
