I am glad this topic came up. This morning, I was about to pull out my hair trying to figure out why some of my code was soft wrapping and other parts weren't in the same file. Turns out it was part of a bundle that was doing this. It was very frustrating.

To be honest, I don't see the point of bundle's overriding something that should be a global setting. If I have soft wrap disabled via [view -> Disable soft wrap], a bundle should not be able to override that setting and reenable it. This inconsistency (as a user) caused me to think that TxMt was just glitching out.

Bundles should only be suggestions of what to do.

The current Bundles → Select Bundle Item… (⌃⌘T) window is a query functionality that I would like to extend to allow querying settings and key bindings outside bundles.

Though it’s a challenge to get all the options squeezed into the window and still keep it simple.
