Make a command, in: selected text, out: replace selection. Then just  
make the command: echo "[$TM_SELECTED_TEXT]"

For this one it's harder since commands don't let you do stuff like  
replace the current line, etc. (which I've needed a few times). You  
can make a command which strips the selection, and then a macro which  
select the current line and then fires the command.

As for how to make the command, I don't know of (but there might  
exist) a shell-tool for stripping. You could
puts gets.strip

...although it's a bit overkill :-p.
