[TxMt] opening a file readonly

I would like to see a couple of preferences show up in the Tiger version.

- Abide RW permissions on files
- Open files by default Read-Only

The first one is so if a file is read only (like under revision control) 
this is preserved.
The second one so if managers like to review code they don't mess up 
developers code.

Thanks, Mat.    That's definitely another way to do it... but I don't 
think it's better.     Since textmate jumps me to the line while 
showing me the whole docco, I have a lot more freedom to explore the 
context.    I can even execute finds in the docco I'm looking at, 
while preserving the results of the find in the project.   Plus, I 
get highlighting and folding (as mentioned by Andy).    Grep (and 
doxygen) are definitely powerful for what they do, but what they do 
is filter out matches.   I don't necessarily want the filter, I just 
want the find.

I personally don't have any problems with not making edits, but I 
wanted to back up the original poster that Textmate is a great browse- 
only tool.
