In this case though you can let the script do something like:

         ARGV.concat(%w(/etc/file1 /Users/pmccann/file2))

And then set IS_RUNNING_IN_TEXTMATE in TextMate’s environment  
variable preferences.

It sounds like a good idea -- as Jacob pointed out, we can easily do  
that entirely from bundles, so let’s get someone to do a proof-of- 
concept implementation first, then we can look into if dedicated  
support for something like this is beneficial to have in TM itself.
