[?] I want Textmate to show current file's
encoding in the status bar
This one I don?t really like. Everybody should be using UTF-8 so for most users adding
encoding to the status bar is IMO just adding noise.
It's not about (your?)
personal preference, it's about what you're confronted with in real-world usage.
Not everyone (you work with) uses UTF8, sometimes people you work with save files in the
wrong encoding and you have trouble down the line with your project because of that.
I totally agree with that. Arguing what one *should* be using, we could also remove the
language selector (because "one should know what programming language he is looking
at") or the tab size selector (because "one should not care because TM will
always do it right") from the status bar ;-)
However, back with TM1 there was the "File -> Re-open with encoding" menu
item which was very useful to me in the kind of situation that you describe. Getting this
menu item back in TM2 would IMO serve the purpose and spare precious space on the status
