Sure.  It's attached as psync.py, knock yourself out.  It's also
useful from the command line, and you can run psync.py -h to see all
the options.

I would add it to the TextMate repository but it is sort of a hack in
that it assumes you put all your project files in *one* directory
named the same as the project filename (without the extension).  There
are more details about this in code comments.  It's convenient for me
to make all my projects like this anyway ... maybe you can live with
it too.

Put the script somewhere in your search path (i.e. /usr/local/bin) and
add this command to your Custom bundle:

# needs trailing slash on your sandbox :

if [ ${#TM_PROJECT_FILEPATH} -ne 0 ]; then
	psync.py -l $SBOX -p "$TM_PROJECT_FILEPATH" -H $SERV
	if [ ! -f "$file" ]; then
		echo "file sync would only work if ${TM_FILEPATH} was relative to ${SBOX}"
		exit 1
	psync.py -l $SBOX -f "$file" -H $SERV

.. you will need to swap ssh keys with the remote host otherwise it
won't work from TM (will try to ask for your password).

Anyway, this started out as a simple rsync command then grew and grew
as I started using it for different purposes.  I'm sure most people
will still be fine just constructing an rsync command with variables
inside a project or as separate TM commands.
