At this point, it needs the full path to the bib file. I wonder if  
the script could use the same method that bibtex uses (kpsewhich?) to  
find the file. That doesn't seem necessary when using TM_LATEX_BIB,  
because that's a variable specific to OSX/TextMate -- so no cross- 
platform worries there. But, needing to specify the full path when  
using a \bibliography{} command is potentially something that could  
break cross-platform compatibility of the .tex file itself, or would  
pose problems if one were to move the local texmf tree for some  
reason. I'm not entirely familiar with how the innards of that file- 
finding actually work, but eventually being able to search the texmf  
tree would probably be a good way to go about it.

I think only \cite works right now, but it would be ideal if we could  
complete footcite as well as the cite commands from natbib (citet,  
citep, citeyear, etc).
