You may want to look at the existing Rails migration snippets.

However, to trigger a snippet in the “up” part and have that snippet  
mirror stuff int he (already created) “down” part, one need to  
instead make a command/macro which replace from the caret till the  
end of the document/up method with a snippet.

For more info I’d recommend you check out Duane Johnson’s articles on  
TextMate (he did all the Rails migration stuff and a lot of other  
cool stuff not bundled with TM): http://blog.inquirylabs.com/category/
