[TxMt] Re: Performance Request: Faster "Find in Project"

We've talked about this earlier too,

but projects with big binary files (without extensions, if that  
matters) seem to get searched even though they are big binaries.

It can be a 10MB+ file that it tries to find stuff in. Sometimes If  
the machine is really low on ram, I can get an alert in Mate telling  
me that we're low on ram and that big file cant be opened.

A setting where one could choose to skip searching files > x megs!?

Tried BBEdit, Xcode and searched the same project and they didn't  
look in that specific file. I know that deciding if the file is text  
or binary would be tricky, I mean we could have a 100MB+ postscript  
file, but would be interesting to know what differs betw say TM and  
xCode here.
