[TextMate] Hierarchical snippets?

Apologies if this has already been discussed elsewhere in the list.  I 
couldn't find any references.

Just wanted to ask whether there are any plans to make the Snippets 
menu hierarchical at some future time?

If you make heavy use of snippets, and jump around between different 
languages, the current flat structure feels slightly clumsy.

If you're programming in C++, you're unlikely to want to see PHP 
snippets at the same time, for example..  And a long flat menu with all 
your snippets displayed makes for tedious scrolling.

Perhaps the ability to have the snippets that are displayed at the top 
level of the menu linked to the syntax highlighting currently being 
used?  That might be nice - particularly if the plan is to enable 
"highlighting that changes with context", for people writing in PHP, 
WebWare, Quixote, etc, with a mixture of scripting language and HTML in 
the same file.
