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+...
