Each bundle item likewise has a UUID.

TextMate considers all bundles with the same UUID as being the same  
bundle (so if you rename e.g. the HTML bundle, it still gets merged  
with the default HTML bundle).

Bundles are merged on a item-by-item basis, using the UUID (not the  

So if you change one item in a default bundle, only that single item  
ends up in ~/Library/... -- and it doesn't matter if you rename it,  
it will always hide the default item (duplicating it will make a copy  
with a new UUID, i.e. which doesn't override any default stuff).
