[TxMt] The file association war

I've installed TextMate, BBEdit, and XCode, and I seem to be caught  
in the crossfire of a file association war. Example: TextMate wants  
to be the editor for Fortran 90 files (.f90), but BBEdit wants to be  
the editor for Fortran 77 (.f77) files, and XCode wants to be the  
editor for plain old Fortran (.for) files. Does that make sense to  

What I'd like to do is remove all of BBEdit's and XCode's  
associations, thus leaving TextMate as the editor for just about  
everything (because it's set up to open unassociated files). Is there  
an easy way to do that? I know of a program called RCDefaultApp that  
can show the associations for a given app, but there doesn't seem to  
be a way to do a "bulk unassociation," just one by one. Is there a  
better way?
