The »echo "$TM_SELECTED_TEXT" |« part should be redundant, since stdin 
is already the selected text (which is a preferred way to work on the 
selection, since variables have an upper limit of 256K (okay, not 
likely you'll experience it, but still...) and echo $something will 
mangle the text slightly, like remove newlines.
