You can open several TextMate windows in the same project. It works.
I do that all the time exactly for the purpose you specify: see the
source code and the source of the tests.
I find it easier than switching tabs in the same project window.
The drawback is that you can't easly switch between windows with the
keyboard. There is a somewhat standard shortcut, Command-`, but the `
is a dead-key in some European keyboard mappings so it doesn't seem
to work with Textmate.
I believe I saw something about multiple windows in the same project
for 2.0+ but I could be wrong.

Yes, I would love split windows in Textmate. maybe 2.0+...
