You, sir, are the man.

May I suggest, if you haven't already seen it, taking a look at:

	Mac OS X: Runtime Configuration: Environment Variables

Because of the way the login process works in Mac OS X, setting
BASH_ENV in just your bash init scripts may not have an effect in the
environment in which TextMate runs.  Folks may have to set it in the
~/.MacOSX/environment.plist file as described in the above page, or
use a utility like RCEnvironment
<http://www.rubicode.com/Software/RCEnvironment/> to do it.

Thanks for listening!
