Yeah, I noticed the same thing after digging around a bit—at first I thought things were hard-coded in TM2 until I saw a post about tm_properties :)

It would be awesome if TM2 added native support for .editorconfig!

Awesome, that should make this pretty straightforward.

Just saw the notice about open-sourcing it this morning. I did actually get TM2 working a few days after I sent this original e-mail; I suppose I should have sent a follow-up here. Having the source open will definitely let me see if there's a better way than what I'm currently doing, though.
