I'm a bit confused about how this would work. Let's say I want to  
tweak the Run Script command in the Python bundle. Is the following  
scenario correct?

1. Select the Run Script command in the Bundle Editor and hit the ++  
button to duplicate it
2. Tweak the source of the command as needed
3. There is now a conflict between the new and old commands, so  
change the shortcut of the old command to something else

At this point, I've got my tweaked command doing what the original  
used to do, and the original is still there, sitting in the background.

But what happens when I upgrade TextMate and there is a new version  
of Run Script? Does TextMate replace my original one (which still has  
the same name, only a different shortcut)? If so, then perhaps that  
means I can simply delete the original after making a copy for my own  
use. That should work, as long as I make sure the name of my tweaked  
command is different from the old one, right?
