right, i keep forgetting that ;-)

yup, but often (mostly, actually) I just want to commit some of the  
modified files, either because their changes are related semantically  
or because their changes have been tested already and others not.

so perhaps what I'd want is something like this:

- a key combo to deselect all files in the project drawer (makes it  
easier for the first scenario, i.e. to just commit the currently  
active tab)

- a key-combo to 'sticky-select' the current tab in the project  
drawer: this way I could 'walk through' the open tabs (perform diffs,  
look at code etc.) and consecutively add tabs to the selection and  
then finally do a commit (which would then commit only the selected  

any thoughts on such a feature from anyone else? is that too exotic?

my scenarios are for instance, implementing a new feature by  
modifying a .css file *and* a template and wanting to commit these  
together (sharing the message) while leaving other docuements, that  
are still work-in-progress, alone.

my $0.02,


btw. I totally love having these kinds of problems with TextMate - it  
should be part of a slogan along the lines of "TextMate - exchange  
your ugly coding problems for nicer ones!" *G*
