[TxMt] Textmate on large monitors?

Suppose you’re a person with a bad short-term memory doing test- 
driven design. (You’d be me.) You’d want to have both the test source  
and corresponding product code source visible at the same time. You'd  
probably also like to to spend screen real estate to show a couple of  
other files as well.

To this novice user, TextMate doesn’t seem like it wants you to be  
doing that. For example, apple-t doesn’t remember visits to separate  
windows, so when I want to visit “that file I was just in”, I have to  
remember whether it was in a tab or a window and use either apple-t  
or apple-`. But the reason I want separate windows is I have no  
memory for such things.

However, I’m early enough in the Emacs->TextMate switch that I’m sure  
I’m missing many things. How do you use TextMate on big screens?
