This does work as LaTeX syntax, but not in the "Symbols List" or "Show
Outline" of TextMate.

Oh, I wasn't trying to suggest this should be added to the default
bundle :)

(I'd say that if the class support chapters, then the top level {sect}
corresponds to a \chapter, else a \section.)

But it's not immediately obvious to me how to adjust the current
definition to support this sort of style (for my own use). If it's not
an easy adjustment to make to the current LaTeX bundle, no worries.

As far as I can tell, nothing is broken in the current system (of
LaTeX or of TextMate). I just wanted to experiment with a different
way of doing things.

Many thanks,
