For a project yes, TM_PROJECT_DIRECTORY

You can make a file called .textmate_init in the project root  
directory. This is a shell script which is executed before commands,  
so you should use e.g.

export TM_DB_USER=projectuser

However – due to an implementation detail these values won't be  
available for all commands so you might get some confusing results.
