Wonderful tips. Is there a quick way to find this for those of us who
may be looking? This is a general rant, not directed to TextMate or
its community. I know quite a few members on this forum are involved
in assorted projects, so this may be of value. :-)

In general, (again not specific to TM) help documentation, etc. tends
to miss a few points. Forums and groups like this are wonderful at
filling those gaps. But, is there a process to ensure this information
is either 1) more clearly discoverable via the web site/help material
or 2) added to the web/help when found missing?

I could not find where to change that shortcut so that it becomes backspace instead of help. Is there a bundle involved?
