You can try this. Quit TextMate:
% defaults write com.macromates.textmate AppleFontSmoothing -int 1
That should enable light smoothing for TextMate only.
I haven't tested this, but I did find that the AppleFontSmoothing
preference changes in my Library/Preferences/
ByHost/.GlobalPreferences.<hex>.plist file when I adjust the
preference in the the Appearance system preference panel (it changes
in com.apple.systempreferences.plist as well, but I doubt that
affects anything but the preference pane).
(Aside, does anyone understand the difference between the preferences
under Library/Preferences and those under Library/Preferences/ByHost?)
There might be other knobs as well. I found this page, but it's over
5 years old:
