It's quite ok to take me as an example; I've practiced martial arts :)
I always look in other programs, but not textmate, it's as if I think  
it's going to be hidden so I don't bother looking for it. I should  
probably start paying attention to the graphical menus as much in TM  
as in other places. Don't know why really but it just feels like the  
graphic menus don't tell the whole story, and they don't, but often  
enough they do :)
