In my opinion, one of the most useful things about the Textmate bundle is the snippets feature. I use snippets all the time, many of them customized. Thus, I type eq-tab and a nice equation environment appears, enum-tab and a nice enumerate environment appears, etc etc. If this were made less simple in any way, so that for example I had to navigate a tree to get to the most-used snippets, or if I couldn't design my own tab triggers, I would regard that as a retrograde step. I may be misunderstanding something here and I am sure that is not the intent, but I just wanted to make my point clear.
Relatedly, I mainly use pdflatex but sometimes latex (also bibtex, makeindex). I use skim.app as a viewer, although the current version of skim will sometimes freeze in snow leopard. I also sometimes use xdvi.
I'm absolutely delighted that someone is looking at the latex bundle.

My plan is to remove most of the completion commands and latex snippets from the LaTeX bundle. They will be replaced by a single command. I have a prototype under construction, you can see how it works here:
Basically there is a tree of completions, and you can navigate them just by typing. We can work citation completion, and all existing snippets into this system.
