duh! I stand corrected. I've spent too much time away from messing  
with TextMate's bundles :). Ok then, the steps would be:
Create a new blank command with sole setting that the "save:" option  
is set to current file. You may delete the command once the macro is  
created. Then you basically follow the steps as outlined by Domenico  

automation -> start macro recording
Text/remove trailing spaces
your new blank command that saves things
automation -> stop macro recording
automation -> save scratch macro
Choose name for macro, and set its key equivalent to F3. Move it to  
your favorite location. As Domenico suggested, you might want to set  
the scope to "source" or even something more specific, depending on  
what you want it for.
