[TxMt] Open multiple files in Tabs?

I, too would love the feature you suggest. Before TextMate, I got
used to the way BBedit did it-- all document windows had tabs, and so
could be turned into a project at anytime (without requiring the
foresight to open a project window first).
In the meantime, my workaround has been to select multiple files from
the finder, then choose Open from the File menu, or drag the files
onto TextMate's icon in the dock. This causes all the files to open
in a new (unsaved) project window.
Speaking of TM 2.0 features, it would be nice if the TextMate drawer
would let me drill down on a folder, Finder style. That is, instead
of ONLY toggling a disclosure triangle, I'd like to double-click a
folder and have the drawer display just that folder's contents.
