But then, maybe it should be _windows_ and not tabs?

However, in TextMate I've tried to use option-cmd to toggle (an option):

   Foldings at level -> 0-9
   Freehanded Edit   -> E
   Line numbers      -> L
   Overwrite mode    -> O
   Show Bookmarks    -> B
   Show Invisible    -> I
   Soft Wrap         -> W

I may have left out some, but all these toggle, and they use option- 
cmd as modifier. So granted the argument for putting Close All Tabs  
on option (also since alternate menu items generally prefer the  
option modifier), changing just soft wrap to e.g. ctrl-cmd would IMHO  
give more inconsistency.

The Close All Tabs is slightly consistent since New Project, Save  
Project and Save Project As… use ctrl-cmd (adding shift for the  
latter) as modifier keys.
