Well, it's there now! Hope it works as you expect it to. (You do  
update through subversion, right?)

In your home directory, TMCodeBrowser should have created a file  
titled ".ctags.tmcodebrowser". It is not visible in finder I think,  
but you can see it if you type "ls .c*" in the terminal. You would  
want to edit this file in textmate, so in the terminal you would want  
to run a command like "mate .ctags.tmcodebrowser".
If the file is not there, then you would want to create it.

This file contains a section for latex, which looks like this:

--regex-latex=/\\label\{*([^} \t]+)[ \t]*\}/\1/l,label/

If it doesn't then add it.
To get the comments, you would probably have to add a line like this:
or if you want it to only match at the beginning of a line:

No, just neglect on our part. I'll try to fix it.

I don't know anything about koma-script, but if it is not standard  
latex behavior I would rather we create a separate bundle for it,  
which could be done if anyone wants to do it. I can help, but  
probably wouldn't want to be in charge of creating it. We've done  
something like that for the beamer class. Is this something similar  
perhaps? You can have a look at the beamer class and create your a  
similar syntax for koma-script.

Allan is aware of the problem. Don't know if he has a solution yet.
