I'm probably not at the same level of programming experience as you,  
but my experience in dealing with corporations is that the end user  
really doesn't care what the underlying code is, much less how the  
coder manages his code.

One of the (many) nice things about TextMate is that it is easily  
extensible through bundles.  Why don't you make a CVS bundle that  
does what you want?
