[TxMt] [feature request] Better Printing!

I'd like to add my vote for better printing from TextMate - in  
particular the ability to set the font and size.  This is basic  
functionality that a good code editor should should offer, IMHO.

A reasonable work-around is to create a shell script, (calling  
enscript or whatever), wrap this up in Platypus (http:// 
sveinbjorn.sytes.net/platypus) and put the resulting application into  
the Dock.  That way, you can simply drag your files onto the dock  
icon to print them, rather than having to fumble around with Terminal  
each time.
