While I also believe that vi cursor key movements are really useful, I 
don't think it will work in TextMate. It would have to implement two 
different modes (insert and command).
While this may work for a text based editor, it really doesn't work for 
a GUI editor, especially if it is not built from the ground up with this 


PS. While vi is a notable exception, using modes in applications is 
really a bad interface design.
