That's a binary that allows you to launch TM from the command line,  
so you can do just

     % mate myscript.py

to edit myscript.py in the current directory. In addition you can set  
the environment variable EDITOR to "mate -w" so that other command- 
line applications can delegate to TM, for instance svn. See "mate -h"  
for some other options.

To install it just throw it in some directory in your PATH.
