[TxMt] Where does TM store "Treat Files with Extension..."

My best guess is the OakProjectTextFiles key in TextMate's  
preferences file. And no, I expect it's a simple string match,  
meaning no regular expressions.

I'd really like to see TextMate do a check on unknown files to see if  
they have any control characters in them (ASCII value < 32 or >=  
127). If there are none, it should treat it like a text file, and if  
there are any, it should treat it like a binary file. To make it more  
efficient it could also only do this check on the first X bytes of  
the file (some experimentation probably necessary to determine what's  
an appropriate value - the point being so TM doesn't have to check  
the entire file if you select a multi-megabyte file).
